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.

Debian Forked: All for Devuan and Devuan for All?

It is hard to see the direction Devuan will take, given that the project is still in its early days. The new community could create a shallow derivative, or it could fork the entire Debian archive. Another option is to try replacing Debian entirely and become a new gateway between upstream projects and users of all packages, which would require a lot more manpower and infrastructure. Read more
