WebAssembly or wasm is a new, portable, size- and load-time-efficient format suitable for compilation to the web.
WebAssembly is currently being designed as an open standard by a W3C Community Group that includes representatives from all major browsers. Expect the contents of this repository to be in flux: everything is still under discussion.
WebAssembly is efficient and fast: Wasm bytecode is designed to be encoded in a size- and load-time-efficient binary format. WebAssembly aims to execute at native speed by taking advantage of common hardware capabilities available on a wide range of platforms.
