Google Launches Octane: JavaScript Benchmark Built On Popular Apps And Libraries

By HTMLGoodies Staff


Building the Right Environment to Support AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning

The idea here, says Google, is to avoid making Octane a micro-benchmark (like the popular SunSpider benchmark) that only tests very specific JavaScript features. In addition, Octane also runs tests based on Mozilla’s PDF reader, a open-source GameBoy emulator, a 2D physics engine and a port of the 3D Bullet Engine. The CodeLoad test also uses code derived from Closure and jQuery to measure how quickly a JavaScript engine can load and execute commonly used JavaScript libraries. Read the full details here.
