Meanwhile, Google Battens Down the Browser

Google recently unveiled a hunk of middleware code that speeds downloads and thus speeds the performance of Web apps.

The new Native Client is so fast that, apparently, you can even do fancy image processing over the Web. It's also meant to block malware. So far, though, the client doesn't work with IE. It'll be interesting to see if Google and Microsoft can come to terms and put these two tools on friendly footing.
