Quick Test: Mozilla Firefox VS. Google Chrome


This is just a quick little blog post to get me back into my blogging. I just did a test using SunSpider on an (admitedly) not very powerful computer and got some interesting results! Both Firefox and Chrome were tested on the same computer to make it fair and just look how much faster Google Chrome was!

It was overall, 6.22 times faster than Mozilla Firefox! This shows that Google has gone to allot of effort to increase the speed at which JS is handled. For a more in-depth look at my results, here are the links to each:

I will be posting some more tests that I run in the near future to see if I get the same results on different computers and then do a full analysis of my results! Watch this space…

Oh and if you want to get Google Chrome after seeing these results, you can download it here and if you like BETA versions click here!

    1. To start off with, thanks for posting the first legitimate comment on my blog 🙂 It is greatly appreciated…

      Internet Explorer does have it’s advantages for compatibility, but that compatibility comes with large security risks! It is also quite slow…. For those reasons I avoid using IE where possible. Google Chrome is a nice browser for just surfing as it is so simple and just does what it is meant to do and it does it very fast! I would recommend checking it out!
