Unfortunately this is really not the program you want. The RI you're
trying to download was an experimental interpreter for spec purposes,
following a language design that is no longer on the table; it would not
have performed adequately, even if it was implementing a language likely
to be approved.
As it stands, the language it interprets is *not* the language approved
as ES5 (not even close) and it's not clear that the committee is likely
to follow along much of the work that was done on that RI.
In other words, it's more of a historical artifact at this point than a
representative of current committee effort or consensus. It's not worth
using in the way you describe.
