Google released Chrome 10 beta with the first version of the software code-named 'Arctic Sea' in-built, with the aim of getting developers involved in building Native Client modules for Chrome applications.
NaCl, on the other hand, will enable downloads directly from a web server with specific security mechanisms to keep-off malicious codes, and the browser ensures that the software executes safe operations, as the software is confined within the Chrome 'sandbox'.
Additionally, code libraries written in the C programming language can be relatively adapted for browser-based applications through the NaCl, making it easy, for instance, to build into web applications the codecs Skype uses for compressing and decompressing video and audio.
Google's stance as a great proponent of Cloud Computing technology also calls to bear on the implementation of the Native client in information storage and retrieval over a central server on the internet.
However, the extent to which this new technology can be applied outside the Chrome environment remains to be seen, nonetheless developers will need to play a very dominant role.
