Array.prototype.reduce() seems to be much faster.
array.reduce((acc, val) => val > acc ? val : acc);
console.timeEnd('first') // first: 0.179ms
array.reduce((acc, val) => val > acc ? val : acc)
console.timeEnd('second') // second: 0.054ms
Definitively slower to execute but half the time to write it :)
Depends what the codes for really.
Math.max() is easier to read, and if only run occasionally on small arrays... fine.
Reduce is a little more convoluted, but still can be understood easily enough. The time savings on the code if running frequently or on larger datasets can quickly add up in benefits.
