WebAssembly Applet

I miss the old Java applets and Flash animations of the mid-to-late 2000s. They're long dead by now; Over the years it became increasingly obvious that giving servers the ability to run arbitrary un-sandboxed programs on their clients was Very Bad.

So far, I haven't seen anything similar to applets for WebAssembly. A relatively simple, standardised API for user input and graphics would be cool for making little games and tools without needing to spend time focusing on everything around the canvas.

The Applet Demo Itself

This toy needs a Gecko, WebKit, or Blink web browser with Javascript enabled and support for WebAssembly to function properly.
