Assuming you’d want a better image compression algorithm. Some or all browsers lack the implementation. You may seek for available algorism implementations, usually available in C or C++. Or you may write your own. Either way, you'll bring it to the web through WebAssembly. And once you've done that, all your browsers can run it.
WebAssembly is usually associated with C or C++. This is not that hard to explain. emscripten required to port code to WebAssembly already existed. This is how AutoCad or full gaming engines like Unity were ported to the web. This wasn’t possible before WebAssembly.
But any language may find it’s way to the web through WebAssembly. Rust is already a popular, Mozilla being actively involved in WebAssembly. AssemblyScript, a strict subset of TypeScript, is another programming language. It allows web developers to code with WebAssembly and skip the very different C or C++ coding mindsets. Microsoft’s C# is one of the latest entries in the WebAssembly world since the Brazor release.
WebAssembly doesn’t have yet a garbage collector. They’re working on the standard. And among, other drafts, there is even more support for:
greater performance with parallel computing (multi-threading, Asyncify, SIMD - great opportunity for ML in the browser),
web API bindings or
zero cost exception handling.
If you still can’t find a way to use WebAssembly today, look at your web performance bottlenecks in the browser. This seems to be the main opportunity insert WebAssembly into current web apps.
We’ve already made an overview of WebAssembly. It was focused for entry level in the IT industry. People who are curious about technology in general. We usually do that with every Letter for students and we do our best to have a letter for students for every technology. And by student we mean those people who don’t know from where to start and struggle in making their way …
