Running this test on Chrome and IE8 will make them choke (~4 FPS). It runs about 30 FPS on FireFox on my computer. Opera and IE9 Platform Preview runs this test at about 60FPS, with IE9 actually looking a bit more smoother than Opera.

Another test you might want to check out: Browser Flip

The way I see it, IE9 might actually close the performance gap between all other browsers. If IE9 is at least better than the Platform Preview, I might actually reconsider using IE9. Their Acid3 score for IE9 has actually been going up between these builds.

@ Win7User512. I have been having probs w/ FF crashing when watching lengthy videos, like movies or clips larger than 6-8 mins on Hulu or Stagevu. Maybe a cache buffer prob ?? Don't know but I know I am not only one having these probs w/ FF. Simply pops up little crash report window which I have yet to receive an answer on from FF. Been goin on for months. Many of the FF users I talked w/ said same thing, rollback until they fix it, which I did and have not had probs at all. I have faith however in Firefox fixing this shortly as the usually do. Maybe they are too tied up in playing w/ that stupid personas to get to it yet??

Wow, I concur (although the Flickr Explorer makes all of them look horrible.) Haven't used IE as a primary browser for years, but this is interesting.

Tried it with Chrome, 16 tabs opened.

IE8 one tab open, the numbers are exactly the same.

IE was jerking badly and Chrome was fairly smooth

Will try IE9 soon, want to see what it'll do.
