Assess ? Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.

WebAssembly (WASM) is the W3C standard that provides capabilities of executing code in the browser. Supported by all major browsers and backward compatible, it's a binary compilation format designed to run in the browser at near native speeds. It opens up the range of languages you can use to write front-end functionality, with early focus on C, C++ and Rust, and it's also an LLVM compilation target. When run in the sandbox, it can interact with JavaScript and shares the same permissions and security model. Portability and security are key capabilities that will enable most platforms, including mobile and IoT.

WebAssembly is a big step forward in the capabilities of the browser as a code execution environment. Supported by all major browsers and backward compatible, it's a binary compilation format designed to run in the browser at near native speeds. It opens up the range of languages you can use to write front-end functionality, with early focus on C, C++ and Rust, and it's also an LLVM compilation target. When run in the sandbox, it can interact with JavaScript and shares the same permissions and security model. When used with Firefox's new streaming compiler, it also results in faster page initialization. Although it's still early days, this W3C standard is definitely one to start exploring.
