Benchmarking QtWebKit-V8 on Linux

For some time it has been possible to build and run QtWebKit on Linux using Google's V8 JavaScript engine instead of the default JavaScriptCore. I thought it would be good to see some numbers comparing the runtime performance of the two engines in the same environment and also measuring the performance of the browser bindings.

The battle for the title: the fastest ARM JavaScript Engine. Round one.

There was a time, when Internet Explorer ruled the word, and browser developments were nearly stopped. Fortunately, Mozilla Foundation has brought us the Firefox and big waves appeared on the silent ocean. A fierce war has started since then: both in terms of speed and features. After some time other big names joined like Apple and Google. Using these new tools, the human creativity has changed the internet into a rich and beautiful place. (OK, it has dark sides as well).
