The authors present a generic framework, JSCloud, for the remote execution of JavaScript programs. Their work dynamically estimates whether a code partition should be executed remotely. The empirical result shows that JSCloud can be useful if the JavaScript engine on a handheld device is inefficient. A modern web application often has a browser-based component, which contains the JavaScript code of the application. At the same time, people increasingly use handheld devices to access such web applications. Owing to the limited hardware capability and screen sizes, some of these web applications can only be used after customization (such as the case of Facebook for Mobile webpage). However, such customization comes at a cost.
