5         * TODO: Updated to note areas that are now well-covered.
6         
7         - Change the tests and the driver to avoid leaving large object
8         graphs hanging around, since that throws off the subsequent tests.

22         - Rebalance test complexity.
23         
24         Scaled all the tests so they take 400-600ms on a reasonably normal user setup:
25         
26         Internet Explorer 7, Window XP, Dell Latitude D810 with a 2.13GHz Pentium M
27
28         However, for some tests, IE7 was a huge outlier compared to other
29         major browsers. For those tests, I used Firefox 2.0.0.8 on the
30         same OS and hardware as a normalization basis.

78
79         * tests/string-base64.js: Added. Does base64 encoding and decoding.
80         * tests/string-tagcloud.js: Added. Parses a JSON string and
81         generates tagcloud HTML markup based on the data.        
82         * tests/string-unpack-code.js: Added. Unpack compressed versions of

106         - New JavaScript benchmark
107         http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15515
108         
109         A start on a new JavaScript benchmark, with standalone and
110         browser-hosted drivers.
111         
112         The test content is still incomplete and the drivers could use
113         some more features but there is enough here to make a good start.
114         
115         The drivers compute a 95% confidence interval on the mean for the
116         whole test, each category, and each individual test to make it
117         easier to tell whether differences are statistically
118         significant. The confidence interval can be narrowed by running
119         the test more times.
120         
121         * TODO: Added. Remaining things that need to be done.
122         * sunspider: Added. Perl script that acts as the standalone test driver.

126         analysis code.

132         tests.

134         tests.
135         * tests/LIST: Added. List of tests to use.
136         * tests/bitops-3bit-bits-in-byte.js: Added. Some initial test content.
