Browser benchmarks Chrome 18, Firefox 12, Firefox 13, opera 12

I always like to see how well browser do benchmarked against each other. So here are some results for some of the developer editions of some of the most popular browsers. Yes I know Internet Explorer 10 is not on the list. this is because I am running these tests from Ubuntu linux.




i am running browser mark test from rightware.com

Firefox 12.02a scored 378428
Firefox Nightly 13.01 scored 304586
Chrome 18 scored 415066
Opera 12 scored 503701





Higher is better



Now i ran peacekeeper benchmark
Firefox 13 scored 1785
Firefox 12 scored 1775
Chrome 18 scored 1239
Opera 12 scored N/A






Over all I am actually kinda surprised that chrome did not so well on the peacekeeper compared to firefox. Sense on the test page it states that chrome is the king of the hill currently. That is a significant difference in performance between the firefox and chrome. I am also surprised that chrome does not have theora playback capability sense it is a open source standard for web video playing. Though Opera crashed while trying the peacekeeper test. though after restarting a few times got the test to finish. Though one positive for Opera it seemed to move faster finishing the test than both chrome and firefox.



As all these test are just purely just test results not actual using the browser results. This test don't take in to account design of the browser and other features that the browsers have. but none the less they are fun to see how browser progress and the competition between browser.



do you have some test results you like to share. post them in comments.
