Any web assembly multi compilation process over top of going back to javascript is just sketchy to me. But i remember the last time Microsoft tried for a blazer. It was called silverlight 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    and then blazor was just serverside and not clientside :(

    @alexbrooklyn I read the client version was in the works is it not? Otherwise ya what’s the point.

    @dUcKtYpEd client version exists gets support in 2020

    Anything that reduces users' control over their device (and especially if it increases someone else's control) is a bad thing.

    Web assembly does exactly this.
    Web assembly is a bad thing.

    @Root i’m right there with you. I thought .net core was cool because it was open source and lended control back to the developer. I’ve never been a fan of Microsoft’s all in one, over opinionated framework solutions. I hope developers can see through this

    @Root how so? wasm is just a faster code execution environment using compiled binaries. Also it's much more restricted to pure computation type stuff (though that might change). What makes it worse than js?

    @RememberMe I can't read the code, I can't see what it's doing, I can't change the code, I don't have access to a dev console, I can't selectively allow/disallow code from specific domains, ...

    It takes more control away from the user in exchange for faster runtimes. But why is web anything slow? It's not like rendering a webpage is super computationally expensive, let alone what, the page's JS accepting input and changing some controls around? Come on. Apart from JS graphics, most of the slowdown comes from fingerprinting, trackers, and e.g. replay (screen recorder) scripts. (And shoddy CSS animations, bubble sorts, etc.; you can't replace thought with more hardware). But as for the "personalization" malware, none of it will go away with the advent of web assembly. Quite the opposite: now they can do more without slowing down the webpage as much, so they will. And the net gain in speed will be practically zero after awhile.

    There's a reason why web apps still run slowly on computers with freaking 5ghz CPUs. And it isn't just lack of optimization because "we have the hardware." It isn't React, either. It's stupid and evil people.
