Google has released a new version of its Octane Benchmark Suite that helps Web developers measure a browser’s performance when running complex and demanding Web applications used by Internet visitors each day.
The new Octane also includes fixes for three existing benchmarks to refine their target measurements, he wrote. They are Regexp, which verifies that Regexp calculations give the correct results; GameBoy Emulator, which will now actually run in the strict mode it was originally designed to run in; and CodeLoad, which makes sure that the code load is different on every iteration, wrote Payer.
“Octane 2.0 represents one more step in our continuing quest to deliver the best possible performance for users,” he wrote. “You can run Octane 2.0 in your browser or read the documentation for an in-depth look at the new benchmarks.”
