Everyone must of heard the news that Firefox 3.6 has finally come out. There is a video mentioning all of the new changes in 3.6. Mike Beltzner made mention of a benchmark called SunSpider and said that 3.6 had increased speed to 995 ms, down from 1188 ms. I thought to myself, now that sounds like an interesting thing to put to the test to compare Chrome and Firefox. Here are my own tests.
Firefox 3.6 with SunSpider:
873.8ms +/- 1.9%
Chrome Dev 4.0.295.0 with SunSpider:
408.2ms +/- 1.5%
It turns out that I got a faster rating with Firefox. However, Chrome is still more than twice as fast as Firefox. So tell me, why are you still using Firefox as your primary browser?
