Users praise Firefox 3.0's speeds

Filed under
Moz/FF

Firefox 3.0 Beta 4 users are reporting that Mozilla's new browser is dramatically faster than its predecessor – as well as faster than the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Opera and Safari.

With Firefox 3.0 Beta 4 just released this week, users and bloggers have already put the browser through its paces and published the results of head-to-head benchmark tests between Firefox, Opera, Apple's Safari and Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

According to Percy Cabello, on the Mozilla Links blog, Firefox 3.0 Beta 4 is 53 percent faster than Opera 9.5 beta, twice as fast as Apple's Safari and three times faster than Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) on the SunSpider benchmark, which tests JavaScript performance.

Schroepfer, however, refused to be drawn into a conversation about benchmarks. Instead, he talked about what the open-source project is looking to do.
