Does Chrome use V8 engine?
The V8 engine gets its speed from the Just in Time (JIT) compilation of JS code to native machine code. The ignition interpreter, a key component of V8, compiles the JS code and generates non-optimized machine code. On runtime, the machine code is analyzed and re-compiled for optimal performance.
Is V8 better than SpiderMonkey?
V8 is the fastest, because it compiles all JS to machine code. SpiderMonkey (what FF uses) is fast too, but compiles to an intermediate byte-code, not machine code. That’s the major difference with V8.

Who had the first V8 engine?
Frenchman Leon Levavasseur was a 39-year-old inventor in 1902 when he took out a patent for the first V-8 engine he called the Antoinette. The V8 since then has become the most reliable and efficient internal combustion engine to power automobiles and to see extensive use in power boats and early aircraft.
