JavaScript performance comparison

Revision 20 of this test case created by Rob Friesel

Info

Wondering how much of a difference hoisting f out of crockfordCreate will make.

Preparation code

<script>
  var sharedPrototype = {
    one: function() {
      return 1;
    },
    two: function() {
      return 2;
    },
    three: function() {
      return 3;
    }
  };
 
  function F() {}
  var crockfordCreate = function(proto) {
    F.prototype = proto;
    return new F();
  };
 
  var Constructor = function() {};
  Constructor.prototype = sharedPrototype;
</script>
