Internet & Networking Just three months ago, we announced SquirrelFish, a major revamp of our JavaScript engine featuring a high-performance bytecode interpreter.

SquirrelFish Extreme uses more advanced techniques, including fast native code generation, to deliver even more JavaScript performance.
