Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) vs. Firefox 15, 14 vs. Google Chrome 23 vs. Opera 12.5As we have reported earlier, Google has decided to create a yet another JavaScript benchmark and after publishing some preliminary browser results from other sources, we have decided to do a test of our own.

Firefox 14 (Version 14.0.1)
Firefox 15 Beta 5
Google Chrome 23 Dev (Build 23.0.1246.0)
Opera 12.5 Pre-Alpha (Build 1546)
Opera 12.5 Pre-Alpha (Build 1538)

Hardware

Intel Ivy Bride i3570k
8GB of Samsung Green DDR3 30nm Memory
Radeon HD 7750
Intel 520 120GB SSD

Running Windows 8 Release Preview.

Benchmark Results

Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) vs. Firefox 15, 14 vs. Google Chrome 23 vs. Opera 12.5

* Incomplete, failed at the Mandreel test.

As seen above, the latest build of the Opera 12.5 web browser (both x86 and x86-64) scored 0 points because it refused to load any pages. Therefore, we have decided to use older build, which while failed to complete the benchmark, still managed to beat IE10.

Nothing new to see here, folks. However, for some strange reason, Firefox 15 scored lower than its predecessor.

    Thanks a lot , Push for more testing – which will push IE to increase the bar again in next version.

    Opera knows that. In the latest build 1577, one Opera employee said to disable IPv6 under Network adapter/card settings in Windows. [Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings (left pane) > right-click the adapter > Properties].

    Could you please check Maxthon’s score? Not a big fan but I think it could steel the second place from Firefox

      Isn’t based on the same JS engine as Chrome? Then it should score similarly.

      THOUGH THIS BENCH IS FLAWED. POINTLESS AND STUPID.

      Alpha version of Chrome and no aplha for Firefox??????
      Geeee. To get firefox nightly just jump there:
