The BIG browser benchmark

Filed under
Software
Moz/FF

Chrome 15 vs Opera 11 vs IE9 vs Firefox 8 vs Safari 5 … which browser will be triumphant?

Now that we can get out hands on the new Firefox 8, it’s time to redo the The BIG browser benchmark!

BIG browser benchmark is simple - we take the leading browsers and pit them against four of the toughest benchmark tests available to see which is the tortoise, and which is the hare.

Five browsers are in the running:

* Internet Explorer 9 (9.0.8112.16421) 32-bit
* Firefox 8
* Chrome 15.0.874.106
* Safari 5.1.1
* Opera 11.52

Rest here




Surprise?!

Chrome comes out tops in this and a related ZDnet browser test article. This author poo-poos the difference, the other one celebrates.
All I know is in my world, out of 11 computers only 1 is running Internet Explorer. Three of these eleven computers run Windows, the others, Linux; Firefox is on most, and Chrome on a few.

Lenovo G50 & CentOS 7.2 MATE - Fairly solid

Is there a perfect track record for any which distro? No. Do any two desktop environments ever behave the same? No. Is there anything really good and cool about the MATE offering? Yes, definitely. It's not the finest, but it's definitely quite all right. You do get very decent hardware support, adequate battery life and good performance, smartphone and media support is top notch, and your applications will all run happily. On the other hand, you will struggle with Samba and Bluetooth, and there are some odd issues here and there. I think the Gnome and Xfce offerings are better, but MATE is not to be dissed as a useless relic. Far from it, this is definitely an option you ought to consider if you're into less-than-mainstream desktops, and you happen to like CentOS. To sum it all up, another goodie in the growing arsenal of CentOS fun facts. Enjoy. Read more
