Amazing post and incredible work. I have a question: how does other engines, specially Unity, deal with multi threading on the web? Do they also rely on SharedArrayBuffers and had to disable it? What about COOP/COEP? Is their strategy totally different?

Unity WebGL:

Seems like exactly the same tradeoff: single threaded unless you enable COOP/COEP and fall into the problems of doing so.
