Top Companies Joins Hand To Create Faster Web Browsers
Google, Microsoft, Mozilla and Apple have apparently joined hands in order to build a new binary format code named WebAssembly (wasm.) With an aim to develop faster web browsers, the firms have reportedly created an informal W3C community group called WebAssembly CG.
The WebAssembly bytecode enables developers to make use of a wider set of languages which could be compiled for browsers, and both are set to work in future browsers simultaneously.
Meanwhile, the binary format code is supposed to be 20 per cent faster to decode if compared with asm.js code.
With an aim to introduce a Web standard used by all browsers, WebAssembly allows faster decoding so that the Web applications are able work with performance similar to native applications.
