WebAssembly: several world players work on a faster Internet
Obviously, big players in the Internet industry do all they can to win your loyalty and have you use their own operating system and the associated surrounding ecosystem. This is why it is so exciting to learn that they are now working together on a new script for web browsers that should break down these barriers: WebAssembly.
Google, Apple, Microsoft and Mozilla have joined forces to allow websites to load faster and achieve better interoperability. The entire Internet is governed by standards that make it possible to display websites – whether they are simple or complex, super interactive and full of rich media – correctly in any browser, on any computer, regardless of the operating system.
What you should remember about this evolution is that WebAssembly web apps –apps that are run in the browser, which are by definition platform independent – opens more possibilities. More apps in the browser means better interoperability. And thus less work for the developer who needs to recode his application for various operating systems (iOS, Android, Windows Mobile...). So, this is definitely a positive step forward!
