Pushing JavaScript performance

Lars Bak

Abstract

Google

Scalability and performance are the big challenges when implementing a JavaScript engine for a web browser. Google Chrome introduced the new JavaScript engine, V8, specifically to address these problems. Despite the dynamic nature of JavaScript, we found a way to apply classic object-oriented implementation techniques such as on-the-fly code generation, inline caching, precise generational garbage collection, and snapshotting. This talk will discuss these techniques, the lessons learned, and give an outlook on how far we can push scalability and performance for JavaScript.
