    The whole point of WebAssembly, is to hide the code from the client.

    At the moment, almost all WebAssembly code around the internet is for malicious code. Eventually, large tech companies want to take advantage of that, to run binary code on the client. That way, our implementation and code is properly hidden, because right now it is not and anyone can easily read javascript, no matter how much obfuscation you do.

    Of course we don't say that to the public, in "marketing speak" we say that its faster code

    Can the code that the browser run be seen like for HTML, CSS and Javascript ?
    I don't want my browser to run any binary only code!

    WebAssembly is an instruction set so it code IR code that gets compiled down to byte code.
    But JavaScript gets compiled down to byte code using a just-in-time (JIT) compiler too.
    So WebAssembly is kind of like a platform-agnostic intermediate representation (IR) layer between the machine code and the programming languages, kind of like JVM or CIL.

    Yeah, WebAssembly is really cool. Microsoft use it for Blazor which is a framework which allows the developer to write code in C# then it gets executed on the client side in the web browser.

    It will be interesting to see all the new things coming through WebAssembly such as virtual machines and programming langauges that gets compiled down to WebAssembly. Like you can run Python in the browser and have it compiled down to WebAssembly. There is also talk of using WebAssembly as a virtual instruction set architecture (ISA).
