Yeah. This was one of the things that impressed me too. Multiple browser engines hopping in to support the technology this early in seems like a really good sign.
It pushes client-side computing way further than ever possible before in the browser.
Client-side compression is a great use case, I didn't even think about that.
If a user wants to take a photo on their phone and post it to a website, they'll upload it in the default maximum resolution and then the server will have to compress it. With wasm the resizing could be done in browser and save bandwidth/data plus server resources.
