WebAssembly – Necessity is the Mother of Reinvention?
It’s almost like p-code for the web. Or, something you compile your script to, so that it can be reinterpreted and recompiled within the browser.

Oh great, they’ve invented easy malware obfuscation for the web.
Hehehe … it’s already easy. But this will make it DevOps-easy.
Christopher Gaul – It’s probably not a larger malware risk than js, considering it runs in a similar kind of sandbox that js does.
Was this not the point of Java? I’m confused.
I’m also confused because it feels like this intermediate language stuff is obscuring either the intention or the perceived need to turn the browser into a container host.
Java had a much wider target. We are after all only talking about scripting inside a browser for WebAssembly.
Race Vanderdecken interpreting byte code is a lot faster than interpreting text.
I don’t disagree about the junk – but I don’t see the direct relation to this. This may lead to better code, with less rotten code to slow down your browser.
Race Vanderdecken your beef is with marketers, not programmers.
