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.

  1. Race Vanderdecken – it will actually speed up the web.  Think of it as pre-interpreted javascript.  It takes less bandwidth, and it is faster to execute as you don’t have to parse text.

  2. 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.
