Ever since the introduction of the PWA, I felt forced to learn JS, React, and Angular. I encountered WASM, which compiles Go/Rust to JS. I decided to give go a shot and made a simple weather PWA that tells the weather of various Japanese cities. It was 40x faster than Transcrypt and 0.9x faster than regular JS. Go is even simpler than Python when coming to tools like list comprehension and Pandas.

Go is faster and simpler language but less expressive than Python. You just need more code to do same. For me major advantage go is speed and easy exe generation. Whatever I more often use Python since it 2-3 times more productive that any other language so I spend more on thinking than on coding :)

Do you have an example? I'm surprised to hear this, python's list comprehension is pretty good.
