I remembered i can tile the tabs in Opera makes it simpler if you want to show the details as well.:)

IMO peacekeeper is flawed. I was testing IE8 32bit vs 64 bit and noticed that my IE8 32 score had dropped from ~1050 to ~850. I scoured my PC of anything running to zero effect. A little while later I ran it again and it was back up to ~1050.

I did notice that during the lower score times, I was also having slow access to the peacekeeper page.

It definitely seems like a flaky benchmark. Sunspider might be more consistent.

But benchmarking browsers is a largely pointless activity. A browser being even 2 or 3 times faster doesn't actually result in a better browsing experience, because the bottleneck is not in rendering, it is in getting pages off the net.
Peacekeeper benchmarks do seem to vary depending on what time of day you do them but if you do do different browsers under the same conditions the relative performance seems OK.

All the browsers are fast enough with my 10MB broadband even IE 8 , if the internet connection is slow or i am being throttled (capped) by my broadband provider the turbo mode in Opera will make it the fastest but if you forget to turn it off when your connection speed improves Opera will then be the slowest browser.
What the Peacekeeper test does not show is how fast Opera is when you use the back or forwards buttons that is noticeable.
IE 8 is fast enough for most sites but is pretty useless on sites like Chromium Experiments.
The User Interface of a browser is where you can gain speed the slowest part of my system is the human keyboard operator so has your browser got good keyboard shortcuts mouse gestures etc...

Opera has released 10.53 a stability & security fix. I benchmarked it against Chome which for some unknown reason was running very slowly so I installed a newer version & that was even slower. Opera & Firefox were unaffected.

Doesn't seem to me that opera's the world's fastest browser.

Some browsers you don't see often on Windows 7 64 bit running on a mobile processor.

@ Devon not on your PC but the fastest system on Peacekeeper using Opera 10.52 scored 14274 so if any browser can lay claim to being the fastest it's Opera .
Just tested the latest 10.54 beta from Opera & its very fast while Chrome at least on my PC has slowed to a crawl.

Two weeks ago Chrome 5.0.375.17 beta scored 11252 on my PC see page 15 of this thread post 148.
Since then on my PC Chrome has been running very slowly especially on the rendering tests installing the latest Chrome beta tonight it's the same story everything else on my PC is running fast browsing with Chrome feels as fast as ever it's only running the Peacekeeper test it seems slow especially the bouncing balls, no idea why.

These browsers seem to be going backwards instead of forwards.
