Mozilla To Develop A New JavaScript Engine (ActionMonkey)

By | July 24, 2007 | 0 Comments


It seems that Mozilla Devs ain’t sleeping. They are going to develop a brand new JavaScript engine called “ActionMonkey“.

ActionMonkey is the code-name for the project to integrate Tamarin and SpiderMonkey as part of Mozilla 2.

Stage 0 of this project is underway. What they are going to do now is to replace SpiderMonkey’s GC (jsgc) with Tamarin’s GC (MMgc).

Their new efforts will boost performance for sure and I am waiting for more news from ActionMonkey blog.
