It would be great to get access to the IE9+ Chakra engine as a lightweight (in terms of file size), ES5 compatible alternative to V8.
Comments: >Still, I wonder if there is some way to get access to the modern bits of Chakra (parsing, ES5 extras, JSON etc.) via it's ActiveScript implementation? ‚Äč From [this page](http://www.panopticoncentral.net/2013/07/02/introducing-jsrt-embedding-javascript-on-windows/): _The new Chakra engine, which has a high-performance GC and JIT compiler, does not officially support the IActiveScript interfaces._ We remain very much interested in Chakra because it's the only modern JavaScript engine that supports debugging in Visual Studio, but it does look like ClearScript integration will take some time, and that's assuming that general interception is on the JsRT roadmap. Cheers!
