Performance Comparison of Web Browsers

PERFORMANCE COMPARISON The latest versions of the top 5 major web browsers were tested under 6 performance indicators to of WEB BROWSERS during caching performance benchmarks. The mean values are reported below. see how they stack up against each other. Browsers were tested 3 times with unprimed caches except JavaScript Speed Faster JavaScript execution times means that Ajax-heavy sites like Digg and webapps like Gmail will be more responsive to user actions. To test core JavaScript function execution speeds, SunSpider JavaScript Benchmark was used. CPU Usage (Under Stress) CPU usage reveals how much system resources a browser needs: resource hogs show higher CPU utilization. Windows Resource Monitor was used to obtain aver- age CPU occupation (%) while SunSpider was running to simulate activity. 1,230.6ms 7.6% 542.3ms 3.0% 6,305.5ms 13.1% 3,439.7ms 11.3% 863.9ms 4.4% DOM Selection Speed The faster a browser can select elements in a web page, the more responsive it is on asynchronous page updates (which most Web 2.0 apps heavily rely on). SlickSpeed was used to see how fast jQuery selects elements. CSS Rendering Speed Browsers with fast CSS rendering speeds have faster page response times. The nontroppo.org CSS Rendering Benchmark was used to measure the onLoad dura- tion for complete table-to-div conversion. 73ms 359ms 39ms 91ms 137 ms 793ms 27 ms 253ms 30ms 117ms Page Load Time The total time it takes to load Yahoo.com's front page was measured using Numion Stopwatch. Note that due to latency differences that occur with variable site traffic and server load, caution should be used when interpreting the results. Browser Cache Performance Total page load times for Yahoo.com with primed caches were measured to see how well browsers perform when you have visited a website already. The same variable latency difference may be relevant here with calculating page load times. 1.34s 0.75s 1.45s 0.72s 1.61s 0.87s 1.50s 0.76s 1.61s 0.89s Overall Performance Additional Info Based on the results, the relative rating of each web browser is displayed below.
