Microsoft Edge browser promises to run JS up to three times faster than IE11

Microsoft published some benchmarks results from Unity that reveal the performance of its upcoming Edge browser; Thanks to the integration of Mozilla's asm.js optimizations into the Chakra JavaScript engine, the software giant was able to get Edge to run JavaScript up to three times faster than Internet Explorer 11 and they're still fine tuning the pipeline.
"With the preliminary asm.js support, Chakra and Microsoft Edge now perform more than 300 percent faster on Unity Benchmark, and around 200 percent faster on individual tests like zlib, which features in Google's Octane and Apple's Jet Stream benchmarking suites," said Abhijith Chatra, Chakra senior software engineering manager, and Gaurav Seth, Chakra principal PM manager, in a blog post.

Arriving in Microsoft's Edge browser for Windows 10, the performance improvements thanks to asm.js will also be available to Windows store apps written using HTML/CSS/JS and web views that target the EdgeHTML rendering engine in Windows 10, Seth and Chatra said.

Users who are running the Windows 10 Technical Preview are able to use asm.js via the about:flags page in Edge.
