Firefox engine speeds past Chrome

Mozilla has claimed the fastest SunSpider scores on the planet, after internal tests showed that its latest Firefox JavaScript engine which includes the new JagerMonkey extension outperforms both Google Chrome's V8 engine and Apple Safari's Nitro.

Director of community development Asa Dotzler made the claim on Monday morning with a blog post.
The planet Dotzler refers to does not seem to include Opera or Internet Explorer Mozilla is running shell-only tests against only Chrome V8 and Safari Nitro and the new Firefox engine still trails Chrome on Google's V8 benchmarks. But Mozilla has reached a milestone nonetheless. The open sourcers have long said that their new JavaScript engine would be as fast or faster than the competition.
