Web browser benchmarks on Windows and Mac OS X.
With the recent Firefox and Google Chrome releases, TomsHardware has decided to test all the competitors in both Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
There’s no time to waste, so let’s dive into the results.
Exciting times ahead.
According to various reports, the latest Firefox 9 nightly builds score up to 32% more in JS benchmarks when compared to Firefox 6 and it’s not even finished yet.
Once again, NSS Labs, an independent security research organization, has tested top 5 five web browsers to find out, how good they are at blocking the socially engineered malware.
Has anything changed? In terms of ranking, not rally. However, Google Chrome saw a 340% or 10.2 percentage points improvement when compared to the previous report, which is definably a good news for all its users.

Internet Explorer 9 scores 99-100%.
NSS Labs, an independent network testing facility, has tested 5 most popular web browsers against the socially engineered malware, resulting in more controversy and flame wars all over the Internet.
Although some claim that results are sponsored by Microsoft, Rick Moy, the president of NSS Labs, said that while Microsoft did hire them to benchmark various web browsers few years ago, it was only to improve Internet Explorer’s security. However, after seeing some positive numbers, it was only then sent to the marketing department to do their thing.
