New kid on the block. WASM.

Not only is OpenAI (or any AI product) revolutionising the digital landscape, but WebAssembly is a game-changer for browser applications. Is JavaScript on its way out? Not yet, but may give some space for other languages. Rust is undoubtedly ruling the roost! These are truly exhilarating times!

Not enough processing power for web app? Think WASM.

WebAssembly (WASM) stands as a revolutionary advancement in the realm of web development, unlocking new opportunities for in-browser applications. Born out of collaborative efforts among major browser vendors, WASM is a binary instruction format that allows high-performance execution of code directly in web browsers. This breakthrough technology transcends traditional language barriers, enabling developers to write applications in languages like C, C++, and Rust, and then compile them into a compact and efficient binary format that runs seamlessly in the browser environment. The key advantage lies in its ability to deliver near-native performance, making complex applications, such as games, simulations, and data-intensive tasks, feasible within the web browser. This not only enhances the user experience but also opens doors to a new era of web applications that can rival the capabilities of their desktop counterparts. WASM represents a transformative shift, empowering developers to create more powerful, versatile, and responsive in-browser applications, expanding the horizons of what can be achieved on the web.
