Wasm is aimed to be efficient & fast. Web assembly includes a stack machine that encodes the code in load-time efficient binary format. This allows it to achieve native speeds. Web assembly is a sandboxed environment that guarantees safety of your device. It also will not allow cross-origin that makes the device vulnerable.
Wasm is built as a binary format. It’s very compact to download and also very efficient to compile & execute. Wasm enables speed in 2 areas; first in app start-up speed (2x or more) and secondly in throughput (compiled code runs faster). With Web assembly, we can now have real 64-bit integer data type, more control over memory management & smooth performance throughout the application.
With Wasm, developers across spectrums can bring their native C or C++ applications to the web & reach efficient performance capabilities of the device. This in-turn means no downloads, malwares, etc. as there is no need for installation on the device.
Implementing Wasm in our web project is a sequence of simple tasks:
Wasm is a revolutionary technology. It’s community keeps improving and adding new features at alarming speeds. Wasm is not the only technology of such nature; but it is the one backed by W3C and major company like Microsoft, Google, Apple, etc. Only time will tell what is in store for the future.
