I was struck by the following slide from Brendan’s Mozilla-at-15 post.
Hot damn, those are some impressive projects.
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.
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.
