Firefox is #1 Again (SunSpider JS Benchmark)

Mozilla does it again, or so it seems.

According to the web site, Mozilla’s Spidermonkey JavaScript engine has just surpassed Google’s Chrome V8 performance by a small margin, at least in SunSpider benchmark. However, Chrome still takes the lead in V8 Benchmark Suite.

While it brings more drama to the browser wars, we’d still like to see Opera 11 numbers to be included as well.

Internet Explorer 9 vs. Google Chrome 7 vs. Firefox 4 (Hardware Acceleration)

By | September 1, 2010 | 16 Comments

As Google Chrome 7 (dev) now includes hardware acceleration, guys from DownloadSquad decided to test it along with Internet Explorer 9 (developers preview) and Firefox 4 (beta).

What are the results?
Google Chrome 7 utilized the most of the hardware resources, delivering better FPS (frames per second) than Internet Explorer 9 or Firefox 4, which took the last place.

However, as those are not the final builds, don’t draw your conclusions yet, things might change in the future.

Thanks to geek for the news tip.
