  1. It feels like Web Assembly won't take off until it enables developers to replace JS with other languages like Python. Compiling C++ and Rust is nice and all, but most Web Developers don't need system level programming language features, performance, not to mention their learning curve. From what I understand from another presentation on Mozilla Hacks, WASM is not there yet if we want to use garbage collected languages so until it gets there, it's use will be limited to niche needs.
