I think the problem with "real world" benchmarking is that "real world" means dynamic. It means that you never know WHEN the user is going to press a button and chances are, the user will probably press the button to engage the next action at exactly the wrong time. You also don't know if the user is impatient and pressed the button 10 times and therefore launched the script 10 times even though he didn't intent to. Obviously, a benchmark test would never test that situation. And benchmarks are rarely made on computers running pathetic processors with pathetic amounts of memory available, and tons of weird software running in the background, which is actually pretty typical for the average user. So the question is not, can I play SNES on my computer in Flash? the question is, can I play SNES on my pathetically old computer running an outdated version of Flash whilst simultaneously downloading my emails with bottlenecked bandwidth, preforming a virus scan and having a stubborn and ineffective Firewall lording over it all?
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

JägerMonkey has also been added to the x64 builds recently: http://arewefastyet.com/?machine=4
The previous signature has been removed again. Enjoy your month off, Erunno.

Looking at those individual test results, While V8 and JSCore stay constant, Trace and Jager was flexing up and down.

In the best scenario, We want trace to beat V8 and JsCore with huge margin where it can, and Jager to stay close or equal to V8 and JScore with other test.

Ouch... Nearly twice as bad as the tracing JIT

That's not surprising. It probably needs the same amount of optimization work that x86 needed.
There have always been ghosts in the machine... random segments of code that have grouped together to form unexpected protocols. Unanticipated, these free radicals engender questions of free will, creativity, and even the nature of what we might call the soul...

Tracing seems to have issues, while methods seems just fine...

guys if i were to rely only on sunspider v8 speed and whats not other browser like chrome,opera etc i wouldnt be using firefox!do you honestly believei use firefoxd by random luck or just lunacy.come on guys!it is not our fault if you run your browser improperly .yes bug do come in firefox.but lets face it:there are lot more factor then js speed if you cannot see this then im sorry to say just go with chrome or opera and all your percieved issue will be solve!for those other still here,dont sweat it firefox is one of the top browser .but like any average there are pros and there are con .for me i tend to like the pros of firefox a lot more then the pros of other browser.

drbaltazar, please get your interpunction correctly and use paragraphs... I suppose you are not a native speaker, but you can at least try to get the text formatted correctly.

:mrgreen: Considering those are really WIP heuristics that's actually impressive. It can only get better from now on.
