    this was on firefox with 6 tabs(including this site)

  • Foo

    Firefox 3.6.3 had 21 extensions installed and 109 total tabs open during the test with 4.28 hours of active use and 10.48 hours of idle running.

    All the others, including Firefox 3.7 Alpha, used the base settings with nothing additional installed and a freshly started session.

    Only one browser were started at any one time.

    All browsers, with the exception of Firefox 3.7 Alpha, caused my CPU fans to speed up after a while.

    I did each test two times for each browser and took the result with the best confidence (percentage) on the total score.

    The order is the order I tested them in.

      Why dont you test Opera 9 or even Opera 7? :D

    • Dels

      test opera 10.51 and safari 4 as well, then create some barchart/graph

      • Foo

        Sure, you port Safari and Opera 10.5 to Linux and make them available on the proper repos’ and I’ll do just that.

      Firefox 3.6.3 had 21 extensions installed and 109 total tabs open during the test with 4.28 hours of active use and 10.48 hours of idle running.

      I’m sorry but why? That is the worst case scenario one can use as a test environment. Do the extensions help in a way? Does idling for half a day also somehow ‘stabilize’ the testing process

      • Foo

        Purely due to laziness. Firefox 3.6.3 is my main browser and starting a new session just to do this felt like too much effort for very little gain.

        Worst case scenario would be to have Flash, Java, et al, installed and running some obnoxious Flash movie in some ten other tabs…

  • cousin333

    Maybe it become official today, but I’m testing it for some time…

    First, it is obviously faster, even if it runs more times (it has run 5 times before, now about 20 times). That means it is more accurate.

    Second, the old version results tend to drop heavily with CPU power saving settings activated. With the new version it is not an issue any more.

    I got about the same results as with 0.9.

    • Ichann

      I am also curios to when this will replace the predecessor. I feel like we will see updated scores from around the world running .9.1
