WebAssembly is making progress

WebAssembly, “an experimental efficient low-level programming language for in-browser client-side scripting”, is making progress, and is now available in Chrome Dev/Canary and Firefox Nightly. Microsoft has also announced WebAssembly in Edge. It is also in development in WebKit.
