iOS 5 finally brings Nitro JavaScript speed to home screen Web apps. Apple brought huge JavaScript performance improvements to Mobile Safari in March of this year, but those benefits didn't extend to Web apps saved to a user's home screen. iOS 5 will remedy that situation, however, finally putting home-screen Web apps on equal performance footing with those that run in the browser.

iOS 5 finally brings Nitro JavaScript speed to home screen Web apps

Apple brought its Nitro JavaScript engine to Mobile Safari as part of iOS 4.3. Nitro uses just-in-time compilation to dynamically convert interpreted JavaScript code into compiled native ARM code that runs as much as 2.5 times faster than interpreted code. The engine then changes the area in the memory where the native code is stored from writeable (for data storage) to executable (for code) to run the code directly. Since Web-based applications rely heavily on JavaScript, Web apps running from within Mobile Safari got a significant speed boost form this improvement.
