V8 compiles JavaScript to native machine code ( IA-32, x86-64, ARM, or MIPS ISAs; has also been ported to PowerPC and IBM s390 for use in servers) before executing it, instead of more traditional techniques such as interpreting bytecode or compiling the whole program to machine code and executing it from a filesystem. The compiled code is additionally optimized (and re-optimized) dynamically at runtime, based on heuristics of the code's execution profile. Optimization techniques used include inlining, elision of expensive runtime properties, and inline caching, among many others.
