Introducing SquirrelFish Extreme

Just three months ago, we announced SquirrelFish, a major revamp of our JavaScript engine featuring a high-performance bytecode interpreter. Today we’d like to announce the next generation of our JavaScript engine – SquirrelFish Extreme (or SFX for short). SquirrelFish Extreme uses more advanced techniques, including fast native code generation, to deliver even more JavaScript performance. Benchmarks can be found Squirrelfish Extreme benchmarks can be found on the “Summer of Javascriptcore” blog. As seen, it claims to be faster than both Squirrelfish, Google’s V8, and the upcoming Firefox javascript engine, Tracemonkey.
