Under headline "Status of SIMD in JavaScript"

The page says "and there is an "Intent to implement" in Blink/Chromium." but that has not been true for a while now:

- https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5757910432874496
  Status in Chromium: No longer pursuing 

- https://stackoverflow.com/a/33711584/544779
I've updated this page and all other SIMD pages [1] to say SIMD.js is no longer pursued.
