So, What WebAssembly stands for?
Officially, WebAssembly or wasm is a new portable, size- and load-time-efficient format suitable for compilation to the web. It is new binary format for web.
Why WebAssembly is needed?
Web development is itself a challenging part where things are rapidly evolving and WebAssembly will be a new addition. With this we may see web used in lot of new application which is not possible in today’s scenario. WebAssembly will open more doors by freeing up from the shackles of today’s web.
- Write performance critical code using other language like c/c++.
- It loads significantly faster in mobile devices.
- Sharing of code between applications.
WebAssembly is still in its infancy. Only time could tell us how it will evolve. For some time being wasm and asm.js will stay equivalent to support polyfilling of wasm via JS. After that wasm and JS may diverge. To bring new standard into the web will be as tough as exciting it sounds. But the upside is that we now have an open, vendor-neutral, cross-browser, experience based standard, commitment and involvement to major open source implementation on the web.
