Microsoft, Mozilla, Google and others have teamed up to develop a new binary format for the Web. The companies are working on a new project called “WebAssembly” which is a compilation target for the Web. Microsoft stated:
- Broad language support: We should be able to compile your code from your language of choice.
- High performance: To be a viable way to bring your programs to the web, we need close to native performance.
Currently, the companies are experimenting and discussing the design ideas for WebAssembly. It’ll be very interesting to see how the project progresses in the near future – what do you think? Discuss in the comment section below!
