Firefox is #1 Again (SunSpider JS Benchmark)

Mozilla does it again, or so it seems.

According to the AreWeFastYet.com 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.

Why Stop at 8? Google Chrome 9 Details Are HereWhat happens when you start pushing new browser milestones every month or so? Apparently, features get pushed back as well.

According to cNET, Google has cut off a bunch of features that were originally planned for Google Chrome 8 and is now making its way to Chrome 9.

What was axed?
Hardware acceleration
Hardware based video decoding
Large layers support
Opacity fixes
Canvas issues fix for 2D graphics
CSS reflections, drop shadows and masks support

However, as new Google Chrome branches are usually released every 6 weeks, it’s not a big delay after all.

Hello, Google Chrome 8Although Google Chrome 8 is still in early stages of development, it appears to be shaping up nicely. Following its new release cycle, Google has recently released the very first build of Google Chrome 8 web browser.

Before you become too excited, don’t expect any major changes yet as the only difference between Chromium 7.0.548.0 and Chromium 8.0.549.0 builds is a single bug fix.

Recently, Chrome 7 beta builds received a cloud printing and host remoting features that align nicely with the upcoming Chrome OS release.

What will Chrome 8 bring to the table? Only time will tell. However, performance improvements are more than likely.
