Google native x86 client

Web-browsing taken to the next level -- maybe next-to-the-next level.

While on one side, people are struggling to make javascript engines faster and faster for future web applications (be it chrome's V8 or firefox's tracemonkey), this is an extreme leap on the performance. I've not read about the architecture on native-client so I'm not able to even guess the complications that would arise on the security front. But I believe the concept is more complicated because it is on a "browser".

More info here

The webpage shows a browser running Quake "natively". Not sure about the fps they achieved -- but it seems conceptually it is working. And it is open-source. This is a research project yet.
