What is WebAssembly?
So what is webassembly? WebAssembly is also known as Wasm (abbrev) is an open-source, standardised web programming language that is being used with major browsers.
In order for WebAssembly (WASM) to function, the browser must be able to handle the language. Mozilla (Firefox), Microsoft (Edge), Apple (Safari) and Google (Chrome) have all been involved in the development process. You can find out on “Can I use Wasm” which browser versions support it and look at the roadmap.
Advantages of WebAssembly
The goal of WebAssembley is to help make web development faster and more accessible to developers of all types, not just web application designers and it is growing in popularity.
WebAssembly has proven to be an easy and fast way to speed up websites, so we’re moving towards more and more WebAssembly-based sites.
However, the performance advantages are only going to get better with time, as browsers begin to support more and more features that enable WebAssembly to do its thing.
WebAssembly is a new standard for building HTML5 apps on the web.
Performs equally well on Cross-platforms, desktop and mobile operating systems.
