8browser efficiently and securely, independent of the user&#8217;s operating system.
9<strong>Portable Native Client</strong> extends that technology with
10architecture independence, letting developers compile their code once to run
11in any website and on any architecture.</p>
12<p>In short, Native Client brings the <strong>performance</strong> and <strong>low-level control</strong>
