Chrome team has shipped Chrome 14 to the stable channel which brings various experimental features to the regular users. The latest Chrome update has three important features which extend the capabilities of the Google’s browser.
The first notable feature introduced in stable channel with Chrome 14 is support for Native Client (NaCl). The NaCl features allows execution of “native code” (i.e.; C/C++) right in the browser. As explained earlier, this will allow developers to write faster extensions and web applications. Developers can use Google’s NaCl SDK to create web applications that seamlessly and securely execute native compiled code inside the browser. This is a big deal for Chrome users.

Native Client feature is now enabled by default, so users don’t need to activate any flag or enable it manually. We can see various native client apps in the Chrome Web Store, like the ScummVM. You can try this NaCl app from here.
