that a couple of days left Firefox 19 and Chrome 25 has arrived today, I happened to pass the most popular web browsers GNU / Linux through the blender. I mean, for different benchmarks , and check on the issue. Do you want to know more? We have to continue reading …
25 , Firefox 19 , Opera 12.14 , Konqueror 04.10 , rekonq 2.1 Midori 4.6 (I had to hand the 4.8, sorry) have been chosen. The operating system, mine (!), 64-bit openSUSE 12.2 with KDE 3.4 and 10.4 Linux as a desktop environment. The evidence … the comment below.
The method I used is very simple: all browsers “bareback”, ie as you meet them the first time the run , no extensions or which come default and the default options. In this regard, several points should be clarified:
- test results are never exact , but remain at levels roughly similar. Tests have been repeated several times.
- There are differences in the results from one operating system to another (the only browser that has performed better in Linux than Windows is, surprise, Firefox, not all tests), a distro to another, from one architecture to another, etc, but even so performance differences remain .
- Numbers are not everything, of course, but somehow serve as a yardstick. In any case, the comparative not intended to be one hundred percent reliable , because there are many factors that have not been taken into account to perform tests as ‘aseptic’ possible. It is, as I said before, to see how things are simply out of curiosity.
- Konqueror with WebKit . With KHTML just pass the first test and the last, and does so with a bad score in both cases.
And now let
Finally, The HTML5 Test, which assesses HTML5 feature support . It is considered neutral, but not very relevant.
So while Firefox is listed as the most compatible with a consumption set, click on compatibility Opera and Chrome is a resource eater like no other. This comment is directed only to “the big three”. And although I have not kept this evidence, it is something that you can see for yourselves.
