Hi All,

Check this out:
While debugging my code I found out that the IE6 brouwser is 4.4x quicker!!!
Why is my question?

To check yourself: save the code in a html file and run it in different Browsers.

Cheers,
Bastiaan

i wont test ur code, i think u are right, but i dont thinkk there are any pages write like this, so even IE is faster in dealing ur code, it doesnt mean IE is faster in dealing most other pages.

Aww, IE takes 1/45000 of a second to create a custom Date object, and Mozilla takes 1/3300 of a second to do the same. Is this really an issue?

BTW, your test code has way too much overhead and doesn't take into account that (new Date()) has a granularity of 50-70ms. Here's how to get a true average (divide by 10000 afterwards):
Code: Select all
var avCh1 = 0;
var avCh2 = 0;
var timer, days1, days2, i;

timer = new Date();
for (i=0; i < 10000; i++) {
   days1 = _DaysOfMonth(04,11);
}
avCh1 = (new Date() - timer);

timer = new Date();

for (i=0; i < 10000; i++) {
   days2 = _daysOfMonth(04,11);
}
avCh2 = (new Date() - timer);

I dont find IE to be faster at all. Whether that's percieved speed or not, I dont know, but generally I find IE to be slow, crap and featureless.

Look ... the test of tests.... I depend on this as fact...

MY WIFE ! ! The I know nothing about pcs just make my emails and searches work queen.

She used 7.0 the other night by accident. I left it open on our home pc (Cel 400 512ram) by mistake. I came in the next day and she was using it. I asked why. Her first response was ..... " Its so much faster than explorer ! ! "... I installed 8 yesterday and out of curiosity I asked her if she noticed anything different. She said "I think its even faster then yesterday.. what did you do... ??"

Now thats a test if I ever saw one. Nevermind CODE.. just find a user who doesnt know or cares how a pc runs... If they notice then its BIG... You think that the millions of IE users know why it runs??
