In a blog post, Google announced that it will end support for its PNaCl technology. Short for Portable Native Client, PNaCl was intended to allow browsers to run native C or C++ code. While Google supported the technology in Chrome, the other browser makers never adopted it. As a result, use of PNaCl remained "sufficiently low to warrant deprecation," as the company said in the blog post.

As an alternative, Google is embracing WebAssembly, a competing technology that Apple, Microsoft and Mozilla also support. Chrome and Firefox include default support for WebAssembly, and Edge and Safari have preview versions of WebAssembly support.
