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.
Internet Explorer 10 (IE10) PP5
Google Chrome 17
What do you think about the results? Although it’s just a sneak peak, minus the HTML5 test, IE10 performance is pretty good. However, keep in mind that it was tested against the latest stable and not beta builds of other web browsers.
For even more benchmarks, see the following post.
