What is Google Chrome team doing with Bitcoin?
It is Monday morning here, and I have a feeling that I am going to be rich soon. Okay, may be not, but I am reading and writing about the hottest currency of the year and I am excited.
I see something about Bitcoin on Google Chrome code base. I am still trying to figure out what exactly is going on, getting in touch with developers I know. But I am sure there is a good reason for that Bitcoin smoke this morning.
Add bitcoin to naclports
Native Client provides a cross-platform POSIX like environment. A range of projects from zlib to python to SDL have been ported to run under NaCl. This project captures any NaCl specific build process and patches required to compile these project in one place, allowing them to be gradually up-streamed.
And what is Google Chrome’s Native Client?
Native Client is a sandbox for running compiled C and C++ code in the browser efficiently and securely, independent of the user’s operating system. Portable Native Client extends that technology with architecture independence, letting developers compile their code once to run in any website and on any architecture.
So, What Does This Mean?
Not sure, but I am looking. May be Google is planning to use all their servers to mine Bitcoins. No, I am just kidding!
Stay tuned for more updates on this, as I try to figure out (with my friends) what all this means!. If you happen to know something, drop me a comment!
Or may be, I am a tad extra excited for something very minor!
