Confirm the Ending right approach

Tell us what’s happening:
My code is working, I am just curious if its more efficent to use substring (my approach) or slice (solution). Would appreciate if some1 could explain why.

Thanks alot!

Solution provided from FCC:

  return str.slice(str.length - target.length) === target;

Your code so far

function confirmEnding(str, target) {
  // "Never give up and good luck will find you."
  // -- Falcor
  return str.substring(str.length-target.length, str.length) == target ? true : false;

console.log(confirmEnding("He has to give me a new name", "name"));

Link to the challenge:

Substring version is slightly faster, but not in any meaningful way:

sliceVersion x 611,120,795 ops/sec ±2.12% (79 runs sampled)
substringVersion x 624,514,736 ops/sec ±2.11% (83 runs sampled)
Fastest is substringVersion

Benchmark code:

var Benchmark = require('benchmark');
var suite = new Benchmark.Suite;
var str = 'He has to give me a new name';
var target = 'name';

function sliceVersion(str, target) {
  return str.slice(str.length - target.length) === target;

function substringVersion(str, target) {
  return str.substring(str.length-target.length, str.length) == target ? true : false;

// add tests
suite.add('sliceVersion', function() {
  sliceVersion(str, target)
.add('substringVersion', function() {
  substringVersion(str, target)
// add listeners
.on('cycle', function(event) {
.on('complete', function() {
    console.log('Fastest is ' + this.filter('fastest').map('name'));
// run async
.run({ 'async': true });
