The maturation of the Web platform has given rise to sophisticated and demanding Web applications such as interactive
3D visualization, audio and video software, and games. With that, efficiency and security of code on the Web has become
specific programming model, WebAssembly is an abstraction over modern hardware, making it language-, hardware-, and platform-independent, with use cases beyond just the Web. WebAssembly has been designed with a formal semantics
from the start. We describe the motivation, design and formal semantics of WebAssembly and provide some preliminary experience with implementations.

WebAssembly Reference Manual
WebAssembly, or "wasm", is a general-purpose virtual ISA designed to be a compilation target for a wide variety of programming languages. Much of its distinct personality derives from its security, code compression, and decoding optimization features.

WebAssembly table imports… what are they?
Sometimes in a program you want to be able to have a variable that points to a function, like a callback. Then you can do things like pass it into another function.

WebAssembly is a new way of running code on the web. With it, you can write modules in languages like C or C++ and run them in the browser.
Currently modules can’t run on their own, though. This is expected to change as ES module support comes to browsers. Once that’s in place, WebAssembly modules will likely be loaded in the same way as other ES modules, e.g. using <script type="module">.
