Google Chrome beta supports C/C++, web audio

Google has released a new beta of Chrome. Via Webmonkey:

“Google has released Chrome 14 to the Chrome beta testing channel, which includes, among other new features, the initial beta release of Google’s “Native Client” technology, first announced in 2010. (…)

Native Client is a set of open source tools that allow Chrome to run compiled C and C++ code the same way the browser currently runs JavaScript or other common web programming languages. Native Code offers both a security sandbox and a set of interfaces that provide C and C++ bindings to the capabilities of HTML5. That means web application developers will be able to tap into desktop libraries to create faster, more powerful web apps.”
This could also be a good opportunity for web development with openFrameworks.

Update: the beta also supports Web Audio (via ReadWriteWeb):
