WebAssembly lets you target the Web just like any other platform. WebAssembly is a game-changing technology allowing developers to build applications for the Web that run at near-native speeds. Combining highly optimized performance of running the code, with very small binaries means you can start large applications fast, and run intensive applications smoothly – all via the Web.
Now, starting with Firefox 52, and coming very soon in Chrome, WebAssembly allows you to compile C or C++ to the Web while maintaining near-native performance. A whole new set of developers are now able to target the Web in ways that used to be impossible–and without using plugins.
