I can only assume that you're trying to run this on your Kaypro II.

Still, that demo is a pretty stupid choice. There are many more interesting demos that better showcase the capabilities of modern browsers. That this is what they selected tells me more about the website operators than it does about WebAssembly.

I think it's okay. They think they deserve the handouts they'd deny to others because they believe themselves to be the "right kind of people" who "deserve it". 'Grateful' isn't an emotion I'd associate with them.

I used to work with a couple of NASA subcontractors who talked about when they would code by flipping 8 switches and then pressing a button to push that single byte of code into the computer.

That wasn't uncommon for early personal computers either. Try this in-browser simulations:
