Speed vs. Javascript.NET?

Jan 9, 2013 at 4:32 PM

While the feature comparison is.. well.. no comparison between Jurassic and Javascript.NET, I'm still curious about speed in execution between the two. Javascript.NET is utilizing v8 on the backend, and we all know that to be speedy.

Have any benchmarks or comparisons been run?

Cheers

Curiously enough, this page didn't come up when I searched. But here it is none the less.

Yep, v8 pretty much destroys Jurassic in terms of performance.  This is mostly because Jurassic only does a few really basic optimizations, whereas v8 has a whole team working on making it go faster :-)
