I think there might be killer apps that companies aren't publicizing, because it's part of their competitive advantage.

Example of WASM being used in a major product:


You can infer from this that it's making them 3x faster than anything a competitor can make, and probably inspired a lot of those 'Why is Figma so much more awesome than any comparable tool?' comments I remember reading on Twitter months back.

Agreed - Figma is a very good example. I stand corrected.

I read that a few days ago and just realized why Figma runs better than Miro/RealTimeBoard. I wish the Miro team is also looking to port to WASM/boost performance. I don't think it's easy though; Figma's effort started in 2017.

Adobe XD uses some Wasm also.
