Now it goes one step further by providing a (very-minimalistic for now) web-based IDE that allows to compile & deploy Opa programs in one click in your web browser. Give it a spin!"

Why should you care about yet another language? There are few things that make Opa stand out from the crowd:
it's a language targeted at the web;
it puts lots of emphasis on security;
scalability won't be a problem: your app is distributed and cloud-ready right from the start.
