Google, Microsoft and Mozilla to launch ‘WebAssembly’ – A faster Web standard
Google, Microsoft, and Mozilla team up to launch ‘WebAssembly’ – A new binary format for the web.”
Microsoft, Google, Mozilla and the engineers from the WebKit project today announced that they have teamed up to launch ‘WebAssembly’, a new binary format for compiling applications for the web which is faster than ever.
The basic idea behind it is, that WebAssembly will provide developers with a single compilation target for the web that will, eventually, become a web standard that’s implemented in all browsers.
The ‘asm.js’ code of Mozilla has long aimed to bring near-native speeds to the web. Google’s Native Client project for running native code in the browser had similar aims, but got relatively little traction. It looks like WebAssemly may be able to bring the best of these projects to the browser now.
For initiation, the WebAssembly team aims to offer about the same functionality as asm.js (and developers will be able to use the same Emscripten tool for WebAssembly as they use for compiling asm.js code today).
