    Some new tablets will run Chrome instead of Android, so will there be a separate module for Chrome export, or will Chrome use the web plugin to display Unity? I think it's the latter, can someone confirm?

    From my understanding Unity have collaborated with Google so that Chrome will not require a unity plugin... it will work via native code.

    This also goes for Chrome browsers on standard platforms.

    I guess its all coming soon - as they have already demonstrated the tech.

    though their is neither a timeline for chromes NaCl functionality nor for Unitys NaCl support and for the later we can't expect to see one either.

    so don't plan with anything on that end.

    As an offshoot, I really get confused with the abbreviation NaCl for Native Client. I can't help but pronounce it 'Salt'.
