I’m happy to announce that a work-in-progress port of Qt to the Chrome / Native Client platform has now been pushed to the wip/nacl branch in QtBase. So far development has been closed, but we are now ready to develop in the open and also take contributions. My intention is to at some point merge the work, after the whip/nacl and dev branches have converged sufficiently, 

The main difference from other platforms is that Qt for NaCl is running in the web sandbox, which has lots of interesting implications for areas like file or network access. The port is tested with Qt Widgets and Qt Quick and supports raster and OpenGL graphics.

"Getting started” instructions can be found at qtbase/nacl-readme.

One further patch is needed for QtDeclarative, available here:
