Last week we showed Opera 10.60 to be the world's fastest Webbrowser. That was in the Windows world. But where do Chrome,Firefox, and Opera stand in Linux? Today we find out. Adding theWin 7 results, we'll also learn which OS has the speediest browser. Alright folks. |
Today we have a special treat for you. The last twoWeb Browser Grand Prix stories received tons of reader-basedfeedback. But the comments in the first article resounded onequestion more loudly than the others: what about browserperformance in Linux? Ah, that's a good one. Hot on the heels of Web Browser Grand Prix 2 , we bring you The Linux Circuit.
I'd much prefer foreverything to go smoothly. But stuff happens, and sometimesexecutive decisions need to be made. Less than a week later, hindsight shows the decision to disqualifyOpera as the right call. We have since contacted the three partiesinvolved: Mozilla (author of the Dromaeo benchmarks), Opera, andGoogle.
(In the interimthey added specific code to V8 to also "game" that aspect of thebenchmark, for competitive reasons. Well, there you have it. Whether or not Opera intentionally 'gamed'this benchmark is still up in the air. Without access to the sourcecode, no one outside of Opera would know for sure. An Opera repoffered the initial idea that Profile-Guided Optimizations (PGO)may be to blame for the high Dromaeo scores seen in Windows.According to Opera, its OS X version (which doesn't yet have PGOenabled) does not achieve absurdly high scores in Dromaeo.
Mozilla and Google bothconfirmed that the 5.0.375.70 and 5.0.375.86 scores are bunk. Thefinal version of Chrome that was tested and published (5.0.375.99)scored 290.72. Google contends that a caching feature, added to5.0.375.70 but then removed in 5.0.375.99, was to blame. TheMountain View company did nothing about the high Dromaeo scoresback then, even though they were aware of it, because Opera hadn'teither.
