Chrome Dev Hits Version 7; Native Client Part of Release

flattr this!

While Chromium has been perched at version 7 for about a week or so, it was only today that the development channel of Chrome was updated to version 7.


So what’s new? Along with the typical release fixes, Native Client is getting closer to reality in Chrome 7. That means webapps are going to be able to directly use a computer’s hardware resources to run processes, making them working like native applications.

As DownloadSquad’s Lee Mathews points out, you can check out a couple of Native Client demos right here if you’re using version 7 with the switch “–enable-nacl”. You can see it here in the Task Manager of my browser.


Note that Native Client is still experimental, on my machine it ran the above applications very slowly. But hey, it’s the first release.
