Browser performance test

Friends ;-) recommended me this page to test the browser performance:

dhtml benchmark

This test is especially good if one needs to test the event handling performance in the browser engine.

Rendering performance test results


Browsers and platform:


  1. Swift 0.1 - about 3 seconds
  2. Opera 9 - about 3.3 seconds
  3. FF 2.0 Beta 2 - about 4.7 seconds
  4. Flock 0.7 - about 5 seconds
  5. FF 3.0 - about 5.2 seconds
  6. MS IE 7 - about 5.8 seconds


  • Swift 0.1 is a winner.
  • MS IE 7 is a looser.

JavaScript and browsers

One guy made JavaScript speed comparison between Firefox, IE and Opera: JavaScript Speed Tests.

Results are such: Firefox, IE - suxx, Opera - rulez.

There is another comparison regarding standards support: Link #1, Link #2 and Link #3.

Nevertheless, when it comes to AJAX support the result could be opposite. Check Netvibes with the browser of Your choice.
