Internet Explorer 10 Features Dramatic JavaScript Improvements

Internet Explorer 10 Features Dramatic JavaScript ImprovementsWith the launch of the Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft has introduced a new JScript engine called “Chakra”, which improved the overall browser performance, thanks to the JIT (just in time) compilation on a separate CPU core as well as other improvements.

Now, with the upcoming release of the Internet Explorer 10, the software giant is looking to evolve it even further.

According to the recently published (and very technical) blog post, IE10 performance will improve in many key areas for both games and applications, such as:

– Floating point intensive applications will be up to 50% faster than those running on IE9
– Thanks to fewer runtime shape checks, users will see up to 50% faster property access.
– Garbage collection is now at around 6% instead of the 27%.

Those are only the key points but in case you are interested in all the juicy details, check the following post.

Internet Explorer 10 is shaping up quite nicely and we can’t wait to test it out,

[Thanks, User]

    Imagine one big JS engine shootout: IonMonkey (Firefox), Chakra (IE10), V8 (Chrome (Maxthon uses a heavily modified V8)), JavaScriptCore (Safari) and Carakan (Opera).

    I would love to see that.

    Since now all the browsers are almost the same, now I want to see the battery power usage compared all the users on Windows RT 8, Windows Pro 8 and Windows Phone 8.
