Maximise your Chrome Performance with Benchmark Suite

Today on ezpctips is telling you how to speed up your google chrome with benchmark suites. In the previous article I have written you about Easy Trick to Speed Up your Google Chrome with a lot of start up switches. But if you want to try the benchmark suites, here it goes:

First, i will explain you a little bit more about benchmark suites.
A benchmark suite is a collection of benchmarks, being a benchmark a test or set of
tests used to compare the performance of alternative tools or techniques [1].
A benchmark definition must include the following:
– The context of the benchmark, namely, which tools and which of their characteris-
tics are measured with it.
The benchmark suite does not cover all JavaScript features, which means the performance improvement you will experience with your own applications might be different from that indicated by the benchmarks. For example, if your application does a lot of evaluating regular expressions, you might not see much performance improvement, as V8 uses an external library similar in performance to other engines to deal with regular expressions.

Please also keep in mind that the benchmarks reflect pure JavaScript performance while web applications running in a web browser have tasks other than JavaScript to contend with, such as: waiting for a network connection, manipulating the Document Object Model and rendering pages.

Running the Benchmarks with V8 Standalone

To run the benchmarks with V8 as a standalone JavaScript engine follow the steps below:

  1. Check the prerequisites.
  2. Download V8.
  3. Make sure you are in the directory to which V8 was downloaded then build the V8 shell by typing the following at the command line:
    scons sample=shell
  4. Save the benchmarks to your local disk: right-click the following link then:
    - on Google Chrome or Firefox select Save link as... and save the file to the directory in which V8 was built.
    - on Internet Explorer select Save Target As... and save the file to the directory in which V8 was built.
  5. Unzip the file.
  6. Execute run.js using the V8 shell as follows:
    - on Linux or Mac type ./shell run.js
    - on Windows type shell run.js
  7. The benchmarks are run. The final score is displayed on completion of the benchmarks. This is computed as described above. Scores are not comparable across benchmark suite versions and higher scores means better performance: Bigger is better!
The benchmarks are described in the V8 Benchmark Suite page.
