Opera to get a 2.5x faster JavaScript engine

Posted on Monday, February 09 2009 @ 11:10:31 CET by

CNET writes Norwegian browser maker Opera Software is hard at work on a faster JavaScript engine. The project is named Carakan and promises 2.5x more performance than the Futhark engine of Opera 10 alpha.
Opera's main business is browsers for mobile phones, and its current JavaScript engine is optimized for minimum memory demands, but now performance is the priority, Bolstad said.

"The Web is a changing environment however, and tomorrow's advanced web applications will require faster ECMAScript execution, so we have now taken on the challenge to once again develop the fastest ECMAScript engine on the market," he said. ECMAScript is a standard group's official name for JavaScript.

JavaScript isn't the only way to build Web applications, but it's increasingly widely used. It's the foundation for Google Docs and Gmail, for example, and enables Yahoo Mail users to drag-and-drop messages into folders.
