But wait - Proposition 8, Javascript creator Brendan Eich is trying to kill it with new language - Webassembly

Dubbed WebAssembly, the new effort is a kind of successor to Asm.js, the stripped-down JavaScript dialect that backers describe as an "assembly language for the web." Like Asm.js, it executes via a JavaScript engine. The difference is that WebAssembly is a new, low-level binary format, like a bytecode, which allows it to load and run even faster than Asm.js.
The long-term goal, Eich said, is for WebAssembly to become a kind of binary object format for the web, one that can be used as a compiler target for all kinds of languages - including but not limited to JavaScript.
