    "
    In the most recent stable build of Google Chrome (version 14, if you're keeping track) an exciting and slightly alien feature has been added: Native Client, or NaCl (sodium chloride, salt) for short. Native Client has been coming down the pipe for over a year in various alpha and beta forms, but the fact that it has finally emerged in a consumer-facing version of Chrome could announce a shift in direction for Google."

    It's a double-edged sword. I don't care how many times the virtual machine is "sandboxed". This leaves a great BIG window open for malware.

    *sigh*
