Back in 2009 we have published an article on battery life, where Internet Explorer 8 pretty much dominated other web browsers; now, itâ€™s time for a rematch.
After the previous benchmark results that tested the latest stable versions of web browsers, people expressed their interest in the beta or alpha build results as well. Well, today is your lucky day, folks.
Tested web browsers
Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) Platform Preview
Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) Metro Platform Preview
Google Chrome 18 Beta
Firefox 11 Beta 5
Opera 12 Alpha
With the release of Windows 8 Consumer Preview, guys at Neowin have managed to benchmark the latest version of IE10, which is Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 5, running in both desktop and Metro modes.
What’s the difference between IE10 Metro and Desktop? IE Metro (aka Immersive web browser) uses the 64 bit libraries by default.
With the Firefox 10, Opera 12 and Internet Explorer 10 releases just around the corner, guys from TomsHardware have decided to test the latest stable builds of the top 5 web browsers on both Windows 7 and Mac OS X Lion.
How did your favorite web browser perform? Let’s find out.
Testing notes: both builds have identical build numbers and were tested with default installation settings.
After new Google Chrome and Opera releases, Mozilla has also something up its sleeve: a final version of Firefox 9.
Although it’s not yet publicly announced and can’t be downloaded from the â€śofficialâ€ť site, some users have managed to find Firefox 9 in the official Mozilla Nightly servers and that’s exactly where you can download it.
Give it a go.
Good news for all you benchmark geeks, Futuremark, the worldâ€™s leading benchmark maker, has released a new version of its highly popular web browsers testing tool for you to play with.
Peacekeeper 2 implements the latest HTML5 standards and features and was designed to work with web browsers running on any operating system and pretty much on every device (including tablets and smartphones).
Beats Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 2 in the Test262 test suite, fails against PP3.
With the addition of a spell check, the latest Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 3 build that comes with the Windows 8 Developer Preview (download here) now includes a new auto correct feature, according to Microsoft.
Furthermore, IE10 PP3 now supports CSS Text Shadow, CSS 3D Transforms, CSS3 Transitions and Animations, CSS3 Gradient, SVG Filter Effects and other web standards.
