Hot damn, those are some impressive projects. ← MemShrink progress, week 93–94 → Gzipped JSON is now the preferred format for attaching memory report data to bugs 4 replies on “Mozilla Research is on a roll” Yeah, the portfolio looks really good. FWIW, I expect Broadway.js to make a come-back in that portfolio, along with other downloadable and high-quality codecs. /be I hope some of these projects (like Shumway and Broadway) are able to take advantage of asm.js. Broadway is a C or C++ decoder compiled to JS with Emscripten (https://github.com/mbebenita/Broadway) so it should definitely be able to use asm.js. Shumway (https://github.com/mozilla/shumway) is written in normal JS, but it might be able to use asm.js for small pieces of performance-critical code. And I read that work has already been started on compiling LLJS to asm.js, though I don’t know how far it has progressed. Comments are closed.
