Google has released a new experimental browser plugin that allows web applications to securely run native code on the underlying platform. The plugin, which is called Native Client, is distributed under the open source BSD license and is designed to work with all major platforms and browsers.

Microsoft's COM-based ActiveX technology, which aimed to provide developers with similar capabilities, is widely viewed as one of the most egregious security failings of the Windows operating system and it has become a frequent attack vector for malicious code.
