Google's Native Client

Google's Native Client (a new open-source technology designed to complement JavaScript, Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe AIR and Flash) is geared to address the security issues inherent in leveraging native computer code in application development, helping Google bridge the performance gap between Web and desktop applications.

Netbooks are seen as a first step to that... everyone will be using apps online, etc. etc.

Now that Google has Google docs and shareware, this is the next step--but will it work?
