101         - Rebalance test complexity.
102         
103         Scaled all the tests so they take 400-600ms on a reasonably normal user setup:
104         
105         Internet Explorer 7, Window XP, Dell Latitude D810 with a 2.13GHz Pentium M
106
107         However, for some tests, IE7 was a huge outlier compared to other
108         major browsers. For those tests, I used Firefox 2.0.0.8 on the
109         same OS and hardware as a normalization basis.

159         * tests/string-tagcloud.js: Added. Parses a JSON string and
160         generates tagcloud HTML markup based on the data.        
161         * tests/string-unpack-code.js: Added. Unpack compressed versions of

185         - New JavaScript benchmark
186         http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15515
187         
188         A start on a new JavaScript benchmark, with standalone and
189         browser-hosted drivers.
190         
191         The test content is still incomplete and the drivers could use
192         some more features but there is enough here to make a good start.
193         
194         The drivers compute a 95% confidence interval on the mean for the
195         whole test, each category, and each individual test to make it
196         easier to tell whether differences are statistically
197         significant. The confidence interval can be narrowed by running
198         the test more times.
199         
200         * TODO: Added. Remaining things that need to be done.
201         * sunspider: Added. Perl script that acts as the standalone test driver.

203         of standalone test driver.

205         analysis code.

211         tests.

213         tests.
214         * tests/LIST: Added. List of tests to use.
215         * tests/bitops-3bit-bits-in-byte.js: Added. Some initial test content.
