Timestamps

Syntax

  • millisecondsAndMicrosecondsSincePageLoad = performance.now();
  • millisecondsSinceYear1970 = Date.now();
  • millisecondsSinceYear1970 = (new Date()).getTime();

Remarks

performance.now() is available in modern web browsers and provides reliable timestamps with sub-millisecond resolution.

Since Date.now() and (new Date()).getTime() are based on the system time, they often get skewed by a few milliseconds when the system time is automatically synchronized.
