A JavaScript engine is a computer program that executes JavaScript (JS) code. The first JavaScript engines were mere interpreters, but all relevant modern engines utilize just-in-time compilation for improved performance.[1]

JavaScript engines are typically developed by web browser vendors, and every major browser has one. In a browser, the JavaScript engine runs in concert with the rendering engine via the Document Object Model.

The use of JavaScript engines is not limited to browsers. For example, the Chrome V8 engine is a core component of the popular Node.js and Denoruntime systems.

Since ECMAScript (ES) is the standardized specification of JavaScript, ECMAScript engine is another name for these engines.

History of JavaScript Engine[edit]

The first JavaScript engine was created by Brendan Eich in 1995 for the Netscape Navigatorweb browser. It was a rudimentary interpreter for the nascent language Eich invented. (This evolved into the SpiderMonkey engine, still used by the Firefox browser.)

The first modern JavaScript engine was V8, created by Google for its Chrome browser. V8 debuted as part of Chrome in 2008, and its performance was much better than any prior engine.[2][3] The key innovation was just-in-time compilation, which can significantly improve execution times.

Other browser vendors needed to overhaul their interpreters to compete.[4]Apple developed the Nitro engine for its Safari browser, which had 30% better performance than its predecessor.[5]Mozilla leveraged portions of Nitro to improve its own SpiderMonkey engine.[6]

Since 2017, these browsers have added support for WebAssembly. This enables the use of pre-compiled executables for performance-critical portions of page scripts. The JavaScript engines execute WebAssembly code in the same sandbox as regular JavaScript code.

Notable engines[edit]

  • V8 from Google is the most used JavaScript engine. Google Chrome and the many other Chromium-based browsers use it, as do applications built with CEF, Electron, or any other framework that embeds Chromium. Other uses include the Node.js and Denoruntime systems.
  • SpiderMonkey is developed by Mozilla for use in Firefox and its forks. The GNOME Shell uses it for extension support.
  • JavaScriptCore is Apple's engine for its Safari browser. Other WebKit-based browsers also use it. KJS from KDE was the starting point for its development.[7]
  • Chakra is the JavaScript engine of the Internet Explorer browser. It was also forked by Microsoft for the original Edge browser, but Edge was later rebuilt as a Chromium-based browser and thus now uses V8.[8][9]
  • Hermes is developed by Facebook for Androidapps using the React Native framework.[10]

Many websites take advantage of user locationin order to provide a more relevant experience for their users. For example, a weather websitemight show the local forecast for a user's area, once the user has granted the website permission toaccess their location.

If you're building a UI that changes depending on where the user is located, you probably want tomake sure that the site behaves correctly in different places around the world. To overrideyour geolocation in Chrome DevTools:

  1. Press Command+Shift+P (Mac) orControl+Shift+P (Windows, Linux, Chrome OS) to open the Command Menu.

  2. Type sensors, select Show Sensors, and press Enter.The Sensors tab opens up at the bottom of your DevTools window.

  3. From the Geolocation list select one of the preset cities, like Tokyo,or select Custom location to enter custom longitude and latitude coordinates, or selectLocation unavailable to see how your site behaves when the user's location is not available.
