Native Client is now built into the Dev channel of Google Chrome. This page tells you how to enable and use the integrated version of Native Client.
Note: For now, the integrated version of Native Client has less functionality than the plug-in. If you want to see everything that Native Client can do, download the tarball and install the plug-in. For details of what's different about the integrated version, see [Known issues] (NativeClientInGoogleChrome#Known_issues.md).
Download Google Chrome, if you don't already have it.
Subscribe to the Dev channel.
Launch Google Chrome from the command line, adding --enable-nacl. On Mac and Linux, if you're using dev channel release 5.0.375.9 or 5.0.371.0, respectively (or an earlier version), also add --no-sandbox. On Windows, your command should look like this:
Warning: We recommend running Google Chrome with the --no-sandbox or --enable-nacl flag only for testing Native Client and not for regular web browsing.
When Google Chrome is launched with the --enable-nacl flag, the integrated version of Native Client is used to run the examples and tests. Otherwise, the Native Client plug-in (if installed) is used to run them.
The following tests should work in the integrated version of Native Client:
Tests that have no audio or graphics: The results of these tests should be the same as if you executed them in Google Chrome using the Native Client plug-in.
The following examples don't currently work:
For details about what each example and test contains, see the Examples and Tests page and the README files in the source code.
