Origin of name V8?[edit]

Anyone knows how it got its name "V8"? Is it V8 like in "car-engines"? Or V8 like in "version 8"? Or...? Would be nice to have it explained the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:22, 3 October 2013 (UTC)

Article name[edit]

The engine is called V8, right? Not V8 JavaScript engine? So shouldn't the article rather be named V8 (JavaScript engine)? — Northgrove 08:31, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Moved. Joshua Issac (talk) 21:16, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
Is V8 an engine or only an interpreter? I mean, chrome uses also webcore/JavaScriptCore as engine and only v8 as interpreter (and safari SquirrelFish/Extreme...), or am I wrong? ~~
V8 is Chrome's JavaScript engine. In all release builds of both Chrome and Chromium, V8 does all the JavaScript execution. The source tree does include JavaScriptCore, but is only enabled if the compilation is specifically configured to do so. This is done for the purposes of comparison between the two engines. Any binary you get from an official source, whether it be Chrome or Chromium, uses only V8 to parse and execute JavaScript. And technically, V8 is not an interpreter as it only executes machine code generated from JavaScript. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:55, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Project rating[edit]

I re-rated - javascript is the new platform (and this is the fastest and most used engine) - I'm only not rating top due to range given by others (low, mid) Widefox; talk 14:27, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Maintenance and rating of JavaScript articles[edit]

Concerning editing and maintaining JavaScript-related articles...


If you are interested in collaborating on JavaScript articles or would like to see where you could help, stop by Wikipedia:WikiProject JavaScript and feel free to add your name to the participants list. Both editors and programmers are welcome.

Where to list JavaScript articles[edit]

We've found over 300 JavaScript-related articles so far. If you come across any others, please add them to that list.

User scripts[edit]

The WikiProject is also taking on the organization of the Wikipedia community's user script support pages. If you are interested in helping to organize information on the user scripts (or are curious about what we are up to), let us know!

If you have need for a user script that does not yet exist, or you have a cool idea for a user script or gadget, you can post it at Wikipedia:User scripts/Requests. And if you are a JavaScript programmer, that's a great place to find tasks if you are bored.

How to report JavaScript articles in need of attention[edit]

If you come across a JavaScript article desperately in need of editor attention, and it's beyond your ability to handle, you can add it to our list of JavaScript-related articles that need attention.

Rating JavaScript articles[edit]

At the top of the talk page of most every JavaScript-related article is a WikiProject JavaScript template where you can record the quality class and importance of the article. Doing so will help the community track the stage of completion and watch the highest priority articles more closely.

Thank you. The Transhumanist 01:07, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
