AMD Turion 64 x2 TL-60 (2 GHZ, dual core)
3 GB RAM
Ubuntu GNU/Linux 8.04 (Hardy Heron), 32 bit (up to date).
Due to issues with Konqueror 4.0.3 (was getting the signal 11 (SIGSEGV)), I was not able to finish testing it.
The tests were ran once on a cold startup, cleared cache and no background applications running.
I have decided tu put Firefox 3.0.7 and 3.0.8 because I noticed a decline in speed from an earlier version.
Here are the results:
Browser Accuracy (+-)
Firefox 3.07 (6.70%)
Firefox 3.08 (6.80%)
Epiphany 2.22.2 (8.50%)
Galeon 2.0.4 (2.80%)
Midori 0.0.17 (8.00%)
Opera alpha 10 build 4214 (6.90%)
Crossover Chromium Developer build 21 (7.20%)
After seeing results, it’s quite clear that Chromium wins big by outperforming Galeon by more than 4x times and it’s closest competitor Epiphany by 2x.
I ran the test again with some browsers and I got way different results. For example: Opera getting 9694.0 instead of 11780.6 but with Turbo enabled or Firefox geting 6721 instead of 7319.
