Gaurav Seth, principal manager of Microsoft’s Chakra team, and Ed Maurer, principal group software engineering manager of the Chakra team said in the official blogpost, “While challenging to write by hand, asm.js is leveraged principally by transpiling C/C++ code to run on the Web platform, utilizing technologies such as WebGL and Web Audio. Asm.js is a clear step towards enabling near-native performance for the Web platform, which is why we’re excited to bring it to Chakra in an upcoming release.”
