Google has just added Native Client SDK support for ARM processors based devices running Chrome and Chrome OS.
This means that the ARM processor based Chrome OS models would now support native apps.
This also means that someday soon Chrome on Android might get the ability to run native client apps as well!
While this will help provide more apps to users with ARM devices, we’re far from done. In 2013 the next generation of Native Client, called Portable Native Client, will introduce true architecture-independence by using LLVM bitcode as the wire format. With Portable Native Client, we’ll be able to support not just today’s architectures, but also those of tomorrow – and developers won’t have to recompile their app.
