Windows 7: 2011 Browser Benchmarks

2011 Browser Benchmarks

As you can see I benchmarked a few browsers using the website 'PeaceKeeper'
Here are the results I got:

It was rather a shock to me when I saw Firefox so low, They need to get to work as they will soon be over taken by IE9!

What browser do you use and what are your thoughts on these results?

Hi, D3LL! :)

My thoughts on benchmark results, when it comes to browsers, is that they're a great raw measure for developers but seldom translate to real world experience for users. Keep an eye on FF. You tested 4.0b8 and 4.0b10 is much faster, benchmark-wise. For my daily use, I've always found FF to be the fastest but this is an area that has been hashed out at least 100 times within these forums to varying levels of passionate degrees and vociferousness.

I use firefox. To me, benchmarks on browsers are irrelevant. They don't translate into real world performance for me. I've used Chome, FireFox and IE9. From a speed standpoint, they all feel pretty much the same to me opening pages, posting on forums and refreshing pages. For me, I use FF as I use a handful of browser Add-ons and without them, it's simply not the same browser. So, rarely does anything but Firefox even get used by me.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Firefox has been starting & loading pages slow on my PC but the Firefox 4 beta 9 now seems fine.
Outside benchmarks I doubt speed will matter to most.

I'm a bit surprised how slow browsers are running on your PC compared to mine
