Javascript interpreter are secure, JIT and WebASM inherently insecure on Intel

A browser/Node.js with a Javascript interpreter instead of a JIT compiler would be hell a lot of more secure nowadays. And get rid of WebASM/ASM.js, it's immature and no one uses it anyway - running unsigned untrustworthy bytecode in the CPU seems a big security risk on Intel CPUs.

That's what I learned from the article and the linked articles.
