Notes

The timestamp is not actually high-resolution. To mitigate security threats such as Spectre, browsers currently round the result to varying degrees.

  1. In Firefox, the "privacy.reduceTimerPrecision" preference is enabled by default and defaults to 20us in Firefox 59; in 60 it will be 2ms.

  2. In Firefox, the "privacy.resistFingerprinting" preference changes the precision to 100ms or the value of "privacy.resistFingerprinting.reduceTimerPrecision.microseconds", whichever is larger.

* Partial support with prefix.

Bugs

  • Older versions of Chrome and Opera on Windows have only millisecond precision. The fractional part is always near the very start or the very end of a millisecond. (issue #158234).

  • The Spy in the Sandbox vulnerability is a class of JavaScript-based exploits that leverage the High Resolution Time API to detect CPU cache hit/miss on chosen plaintext data placed into cache by an attacker. Full security research paper is here
