Design Elements for V8
In developing V8, Google took a number of elements into consideration in the design phase:
V8 and Google Chrome
V8 can be run in a stand-alone mode or embedded into any C++ application - like Google Chrome. Although V8 and Google Chrome are separate and distinct, they are bundled together, built together (please see "Google Chrome for Linux: Building from Source"), and unit-tested together (please see "Google Chrome for Linux: Testing and Contributing"). V8 has a lot to offer in the context of Google Chrome for Linux ... and beyond.
