Figma just got a lot faster (

    Hi Michael! The bugs in Chrome at the time were bad enough that we had to disable WebAssembly entirely for Chrome & the desktop app. It's only very recently that we've been able to re-enable it for everyone to see the benefits through a combination of work arounds & working closely with the Chrome WebAssembly team.

    In addition to that, the newly written renderer has only very recently been enabled for everyone, and we didn't even start writing that change until after the previous WebAssembly post was written. If you look at the zooming GIF in the post, the fundamental behavior of zooming has changed beyond it being just a faster computation.
