Same vs. different types

JavaScript performance comparison

Test case created by Chris Khoo

Info

I know it's slightly unfair to test two integers vs. a string & integer, but the results indicate no difference.

Preparation code

 
<script>
Benchmark.prototype.setup = function() {
    function sameType(a) {
      return a;
    }
   
    function differentType(b) {
      return b;
    }
};
</script>

Test runner

Warning! For accurate results, please disable Firebug before running the tests. (Why?)

Java applet disabled.
