What is a NEXE file?

Executable file used by the Google Chrome Web browser; contains an executable that can be run by the browser's Native Client (NaCl) component, similar to how an .EXE file is run by Windows; allows native compiled code (written in C or C++) to be run in the browser quickly and without incurring much overhead.

More Information

NEXE files are often used by game developers when porting their code so that their games can be run within a Chrome extension. Some games listed in the Chrome Web Store use native executables.

NOTE: The Native Client project is an open source effort that provides the Native Client Software Development Kit (SDK) for creating NEXE files.
