That only counts the in-browser usage.
This is the only use of WebAssembly that has any obvious relevance for MorphOS.Quote:
WebAssembly could be used as a general-purpose bytecode outside the browser. This could allow 68k users to write code that self-ports without a JIT.
But JIT compilers already exist. Why would anybody waste time on reinventing the wheel? To validate your years of promoting a vision that very few people were interested in?
Increasingly limited APIs and outdated developer tools are much bigger concerns for any developers with 68K hardware that plan to develop software that is also of interest to users of more modern PPC operating systems.
If you follow the news, the biggest focus of new 68K software developments appears to be on titles that require either physical or emulated Commodore custom chips to run. Luckily, there are plenty of emulation options out there for running these titles on non-68K hardware. Outside of running these type of emulators inside a browser, WebAssembly has nothing worthwhile to offer in this context.
