Native Client Apps In Chrome Web Store

by arupchou on September 21, 2011

Recently Google has come up with version 14 of its Chrome browser which supports native client (NaCl). With Chrome 14 supporting NaCl, developers can run C and C++ applications within the browser on platforms such as Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Developers can use this technology to run present apps within the browser and run them faster than rewritten version which uses HTML5 and JavaScript technology. Google has also revealed that in some operations NaCl is almost 90% quicker than JavaScript. The Chrome web store now has four NaCl apps. The first four NaCl apps to make way to Chrome Web Store are Nethlack console, Colossal Cave Adventure, ScummVM and SodaSynth. Let us look at the NaCl apps.

Nature Of The Applications

ScummVM

ScummVM includes a couple of antique DOS games and it showcases the access to a structure of the directory. It has the ability to run ScummVM AppC++ code. The gaming experience was quite satisfying for us and we hope that most of the users will enjoy the game. The port contains two games namely Beneath a Steel Sky and Lure of the Temptress. NaCl box equips Chrome to run DOS games such as Descent, Duke Nukem etc.

SodaSynth

This is probably the most striking of the NaCl app present at this time. It is a synthesizer and live loopers which will allow users to SodaSynth Appmake recording and jam. Some of the features of the application are as follows:

  • Allows creating of loops through overdubbing integrated with built-in beat.
  • It has the lowest latency keyboard on the web.
  • The application is written in high performance C++.
  • It has a unique spectral morphing algorithm to produce sounds.
  • The app includes 24-built in synth presets

The application has been designed in a manner such that it gives artists clean sounds easily fitting into tracks. Users can create complex audio by using a recorder.

Colossal Cave Adventure

Colossal Cave Adventure AppThe original text of the application was developed by Fortran in 1970s. This is a very popular and ground breaking application and it brings the adventure in the native client supported browser.

Nethack Console

Nethack AppThe application requires Dev/Beta channel of Chrome to run and is ported to run under native client.

Since this is the initial stage, the applications have nothing much to say. But we hope that in future the apps will be developed further and NaCl is set to become more interesting once support for 3D arrives.
