From the author himself, circa 2011
“The new “better is better” hope for multiple languages is NaCl. It was the driver for the Pepper API that failed by being too chromium-specific. Hope springs eternal, but IMHO the C/C++ toolchains will have CFI enforcement for portable safe binary code sooner than the browser vendors will agree on NaCl and Pepper2 or 3.The “worse is better” hope is compilation to JS combined with language and VM evolution. That is my bet. And I am putting money on it at Mozilla.”
