Stainless and Chrome tied for the fastest results in the RegExp part of the SunSpider JavaScript test.

Stainless did very well, finishing all tests with very good results. Stainless displayed a solid foundation, and even tied with Chrome for the fastest RegExp results in the SunSpider JavaScript test.
