benchmark you javascript

Here is script that is used to benchmark jQuery.

// Runs a function many times without the function call overhead
function benchmark(fn, times, name){
 fn = fn.toString();
 var s = fn.indexOf('{')+1,
  e = fn.lastIndexOf('}');
 fn = fn.substring(s,e);
 
  return benchmarkString(fn, times, name);
}

function benchmarkString(fn, times, name) {
  var fn = new Function("i", "var t=new Date; while(i--) {" + fn + "}; return new Date - t")(times)
  fn.displayName = name || "benchmarked";
  return fn;
}
