Thanks for sharing your interesting findings Daniel Reus !!! I appreciate you taking the time to leave such a thoughtful response.
Hopefully the great service JSPerf will be up soon; they broke a few months ago when ZEIT migrated to Vercel pending some configuration files that are being worked on in their GitHub repository here: https://github.com/jsperf/jsperf.com/issues/537 … There’s no reason it shouldn’t be up soon 😁
Looking at your results, you’re right that there’s a big difference in using console.log() vs. not doing so — thanks for investigating it and finding the factor of 800x slower, like you said.
The results from this particular article were from Firefox on Windows 7, 64-bit I believe.
Thanks so much for sharing your findings! Cheers!!
