New V8 Benchmark Posted

v8 A new version of the V8 Benchmark has been posted.  V8 is the Javascript engine used in Google Chrome.

Version 3 adds a new benchmark, RegExp. The RegExp benchmark is generated by loading 50 of the most popular pages on the web and logging all regexp operations performed. Each operation is given a weight that is calculated from an estimate of the popularity of the pages where it occurs and the number of times it is executed while loading each page. Finally the literal letters in the data are encoded using ROT13 in a way that does not affect how the regexps match their input.
