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.

It looks like Steam survey now also tracks software usage. While it’s just a minority of all Internet users (and all of them are gamers), you can still gather some interesting numbers.

Personally, I was curious about Microsoft Silverlight adoption. Turns out, 1 out of 2 people has actually Silverlight installed. Adobe Flash Player on the other hand dominates the market.
