wiki:JavaScript and DOM Benchmarks

Version 11 (modified by, 10 years ago) (diff)


Mostly DOM

These benchmarks are mostly testing DOM performance, not JavaScript. But they can be significantly affected by JS performance (strings, garbage collection, etc).

  • Hixie's DOM Core Performance tests - pure test of basic DOM operations
  • QuirksMode W3C DOM vs. innerHTML - this was meant to compare performance of using DOM methods to innerHTML to build content, but is also interesting as a cross-browser metric.
  • double-dollar - comparison of various JS DOM speed tests, note however that many toolkits use different approaches for different browsers, so inter-browser comparison value is low, although real-world value is high.

Mostly JavaScript

These could be converted to pure JS tests that can run even command-line.

Mixed JS and DOM

also covers some DOM stuff. The correctness checks seem wrong, as both WebKit and Firefox 2 fail a lot of them.
