For a little over two decades now, we’ve had only one programming language available to use natively in a web browser: the famous and infamous JavaScript. The slow death of third-party binary plug-ins has ruled out other languages, such as Java and Flash’s ActionScript, as the old first-class citizens for web development. Other web languages, like CoffeeScript, are just compiled to JavaScript at the end of the day.

But now we have a new possibility: WebAssembly, or Wasm for short.
