re: A tale about not-so-much-dead JavaScript VIEW POST


While everything you said, I think it comes as a disappointment to many. WASM was hyped up to be (wrongly in hindsight) to be the way the JavaScript monopoly was going to be (finally) toppled. I love JS. But I am by no means the only developer, and we also shouldn't expect one language to be able to do everything. I thought WASM binaries were going to (in a way) almost be like bringing .jars back to the Web, but interoperable with the JS Module system. As you have discussed in the article, this is not the case. WASM is meant to simply offload intensive math heavy operations to a lower level format.


It's going to be for both, it's just that they are not there yet, it's a mvp after all.
