The loops

JavaScript performance comparison

Revision 8 of this test case created

Info

Is the "reverse while" really faster than a normal for loop? And if yes, how much?

Preparation code

 
<script>
Benchmark.prototype.setup = function() {
    var iterations = 100,
        a = 0,
        i = 0;
};
</script>
