I'm subscribed to a discussion on adding ASM.js to Chrome. After seeing a new message there, I thought I'd give unrealengine.com/html5 a go and see how well it performs in Chrome and Firefox. On Linux, the framerates weren't great (around 15 - 30 fps) thanks to the fact that graphics drivers still absolutely suck on Linux. Plus, after the first run on Chrome, it refused to play as smoothly, so testing would have suffered.

So I switched to windows. The images included in this post reflect the scores I got in windowed and fullscreen modes on both browsers (most recent stable channel), and a second set for Firefox when I uncapped the FPS. Unfortunately, Chrome doesn't seem to have a way to uncap FPS, so I can't get it's true score. Based on just what I saw, I think Chrome might barely edge out Firefox if it weren't frame-limited, based on Chrome having less stutter when both were capped. Still, can't know for sure. I actually have a feeling rendering may be the bottleneck, as CPU usage wasn't a huge factor while running these.

An interesting thing about all this is that Chrome technically doesn't use ASM. It actually ignores the "use asm" flag and just executes it like it would any other JavaScript. Firefox on the other hand uses what amounts to an entirely different JS engine to execute the code, which is extremely optimized for the ASM subset. Chrome has made a bunch of optimizations to V8 since ASM started becoming a thing in Firefox, so they have optimized for it some, but mostly those optimizations were for javascript in general and they still don't optimize specifically for ASM.

I really wish Chrome allowed changing the fps cap, just so I could see exactly how these two browsers measure up in this benchmark. I am excited to see that ASM.js code will run in Chrome just fine from here on out, and without having to specifically define it as ASM code even.

This is what Rainer did some time ago for XML3D. Seems to be OBJ based. Would be nice to wrap it into a service...

This could be intersting for those working on xml3d.js development for mobiles.
 
DevTools port forwarding allows localhost URLs to work on mobile

+Umar Hansa shares his new workflow:
1. Chrome to Phone my localhost URL from desktop
2. Remote Debug the mobile localhost page and enable port forwarding
3. Refresh and observe that no command line was needed!

Keep in mind that Port Forwarding is an experimental feature.

Chrome to phone: chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/google-chrome-to-phone-ex/oadboiipflhobonjjffjbfekfjcgkhco?hl=en
ADB Extension: github.com/repenaxa/ADBPlugin

Sounds interesting. Just a little far away...
 
Hello, Chrome Developers! Here on the eve of Google I/O 2013, we're proud to announce the next round of Chrome Packaged Apps Hackathons!

Our first event in round 2 will be at the Google offices in San Francisco, overlooking the San Francisco Bay and the Bay Bridge. We've got a full day planned of hacking and learning about Chrome Packaged Apps, and we even have a full codelab for you to work on if you haven't yet started your own app project (this is the same codelab that our I/O attendees will be working on). 

Register at the link below, and do it soon - the event is limited to the first 50 developers that sign up. See you there!

Trace.gl is changing the way I debug JavaScript. It records every function call, and the passed parameters, and lets you explore the log. You can also filter out library calls, so you only see your code. Can instrument browser code, but it's a huge help with Node projects. http://trace.gl
