Performance of Array vs. Object

JavaScript performance comparison

Revision 25 of this test case created

Info

After seeing http://jsperf.com/javascript-associative-vs-non-associative-arrays, I thought the test could be improved.

Preparation code

 
<script>
Benchmark.prototype.setup = function() {
    var arr = [9, 9],
        obj = {
        one: 9,
        two: 9
        },
        one = 9,
        two = 9;
};
</script>
