Google Native Client grows out of research phase

With robust security corroboration, Google has boosted its open-source Native Client Technology to accelerate Web applications out of research phase and is taking measures to build it into the Chrome browser.

Google’s Native Client engineering manager Brad Chen in a mailing list announcement stated the basic architecture of this system is effectual and the implementation is supportable, so many tasks are undertaken for the transition of Native Client from a research technology to a development platform.

Native Client, called Nacl is a used directly on x86 processors (like Intel’s Core line) to run software downloaded over the Web. Its major objective is to achieve the speed of normal “native” software installed on a computer compared to the much slower JavaScript environment that complicated Web sites use today. It is also helpful in evolution of Web from a static sites collection into foundation for more powerful applications.

Chen said “We recognized the underlying technology to be ambitious and risky, and felt strongly than a generous measure of public scrutiny was appropriate before we committed to any definite plans”. The inability to execute Native Client software downloaded from the open Internet will be removed considering several security conditions.

Nacl was first introduced in December, but Google doesn’t like that approach.

In Google I/O conference, processing power of Nacl was shown with Web-based photo editor as an example. Google also is trying to combine Nacl with O3D, the project which allows browsers to enhance 3D graphics with the help of hardware.
