Hello wasm-pack!

wasm-pack is a tool for assembling and packaging Rust crates that target WebAssembly. These packages can be published to the npm Registry and used alongside other packages. This means you can use them side-by-side with JS and other packages, and in many kind of applications, be it a Node.js server side app, a client-side application bundled by Webpack, or any other sort of application that uses npm dependencies. We're recording a show with Lin Clark today and will definitely ask her all about the progress Mozilla folks have been making on merging the JavaScript and Rust worlds via WebAssembly.

How healthy is the Internet?

Mozilla has released their annual Internet Health Report: Our 2018 compilation of research explains what’s helping and what’s hurting the Internet across five issues, from personal experience to global concerns.

Latest Firefox: faster, with always-on privacy with opt-in Tracking Protection

Mozilla is doing a ton to ensure that people know they are all about privacy and security with the latest release of Firefox. ...we believe that privacy is fundamental to a healthy internet. That’s why we build Firefox, and all our products, to give you greater control over the information you share online and the information you share with us. We strive to collect only what we need to improve Firefox for everyone. To enable tracking protection, open preferences and click on "Privacy & Security," then scroll down to "Tracking Protection" and change that setting to "Always." 😎 A page you may not know about is Mozilla's full-disclosure privacy page for Firefox that includes explanations and details on what data Firefox shares and how you can change your settings to share even less. This page is auto-opened when you first install and launch Firefox.

Mozilla Files Suit Against FCC to Protect Net Neutrality

Thank you to Mozilla for standing behind their mission to "create products and policy to keep the internet in service of people, not profit". As we have said many times over the years, we’ll keep fighting for the open internet to ensure everyone has access to the entire internet and do everything in our power to protect net neutrality. In addition to our court challenge, we are also taking steps to ask Congress and the courts to fix the broken policies.
