John’s article talks about some of the use cases for asm.js, some of the common misconceptions about it, and finally includes a question and answer section with Mozilla’s compiler engineer David Herman, who is one of the authors of the asm.js specification. It’s definitely a good read, so check it out!
I think asm.js will be really important over the coming months and years, and I’m excited to see other browser vendors already getting on board. I got even more excited about it when I saw Mozilla and Epic Games’ demo showing the Unreal Engine running in the browser at very good performance, thanks to Emscripten and asm.js last week.
