⇨ Chromium Blog: A New Crankshaft for V8

December 7, 2010

Today we are introducing Crankshaft, a new compilation infrastructure for V8, Google Chrome's JavaScript engine. By using aggressive optimizations, Crankshaft dramatically improves the performance of compute-intensive JavaScript applications - often by more than a factor of two! This will give users a faster and more responsive experience loading web pages and applications built with complex JavaScript.

Since node.js is based on V8, I wonder if it can leverage this new infrastructure to improve its performance.
