Anyone noticed lately that Chrome is outperforming Firefox now? I think it’s because they’ve turned on hardware acceleration where before it was something you had to turn on manually. Not sure how things are on a Mac as I just have a Mac Mini and 2GB RAM + Lion don’t equal the greatest testing environment. But here’s how they rank on my PC:

1) Chrome: A+
2) IE9 : A-
3) Firefox: B-
4) Opera: C-
5) Safari: D

The scary thing there, is that IE appears above Firefox. Maybe I’ll have to go back to it and try it out again.

IE9 is so much better than FF as of now in terms of performance. That says everything, FF isn’t improving recently.

I’ve been staying away from IE due to previous problems, particularly WordPress themes looking totally different in IE than Firefox/Chrome.

not for requestAnimationFrame in Chrome. IE9 doesn’t support that and when compared to an IE9 setInterval Chrome wins hands down. You might not be able to tell for simple stuff but in some stress tests I’ve done between the two Chrome achieves double the frame rate.

IMO because of the big Flash to JS switch a browser’s main focus should be performance. And Mozilla should have followed Google and realized that less is more. A good example is how they both use hardware acceleration, yet IE9 + setInterval still beats FF + requestAnimationFrame.
