An intermediate bytecode language that is used to replace various JavaScript routines in Web pages for increased performance. Introduced in 2015 by the W3C, WebAssembly (WASM) allows programmers to write in their preferred language. There are compilers for C/C++, Rust, C#, Java and Python that generate WASM bytecode. Compilers for other languages are also expected.

WebAssembly is more efficient than JavaScript because the pre-compiled bytecode is smaller and downloads faster. In addition, bytecode interpreters execute faster than source code interpreters that have to analyze (parse) long text strings. See bytecode.

Built Into Every Web Browser
WebAssembly provides operations at the machine level, which enables developers to do things that were never defined in the high-level JavaScript language. Just as a JavaScript interpreter was part of every Web browser for more than two decades, by the end of 2017, a WASM interpreter was included in the latest versions of Edge, Chrome, Firefox and Safari. See JavaScript and interpreter.

    (self-designation, Brao or Plao), a group of tribes, considered to be among the oldest inhabitants of the Indochinese Peninsula. They live in southwestern Yünnan Province in China (the Kawa—population 330,000 in 1959), in northern Thailand (the Lawa—population 5,000), and in the mountainous regions of northeastern Burma (population, including the related Palaung tribes, is approximately 200,000). The Wa language, which is split into many dialects, belongs to the Mon branch of the Mon-Khmer languages. Their religion is animism; the worship of skulls, said to be the receptacles of the spirit-keeper, is widespread. Primitive communal relationships are preserved to a considerable extent among the Wa in the high-mountain regions. Women do the farming (slash-and-burn type), and men do the hunting. In the foothills and valley regions of Burma and China the Wa have gone over to the farming of arable lands.
