A "decent" Framework will compile both to machine code in an "ahead of 
time" manner, so simple close loops should result in very similar 

The compiler creating WebAssembly can introduce decent optimization. So 
performance will depend on the Compiler-

Hand written Java Script might be good or bad so performance will depend 
on the author.

It will be interesting to compare the result of the two fpc compilers, 
when available :)
