Description Kentaro Hara 2012-06-29 05:16:19 PDT
Based on the observation described in this ChangeLog (http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/121439), the performance of Element::getAttributeNode() can be optimized by replacing String with AtomicString.

Based on further discussion in #webkit, my current understanding is that ap is ok with these patches.  I'm going to r+ them, but please give ap a chance to respond before landing.

This is faster in some cases. But a case I’d expect this makes slower is when the passed-in attribute name is uppercase. This adds a lookup in the atomic string table of the not-yet-lowercased string.
