Interesting article on mobile memory management

Very detailed article on why mobile JS sucks, + general memory management issues, including GC. Interesting section on why animation and images put a strain on iPad RAM

Lua gets a couple of nice mentions, too…

(Slightly off-topic) According to the article, SunSpider JS performance is best on a Mac with Google Chrome. I have no idea what SunSpider JS is, but I have a Mac and it has Google Chrome on it. Hooray!

@Ignatz, great find. Very interesting article. I have always said “simple is efficient” and this goes on to prove that.

@SkyTheCoder, chromium based browsers are some of the most lightweight browsers out there, hence the great performance. I’m a chrome man myself (or torch) and have slowly been converting my family too, hehe.

Very interesting, indeed.
