Javascript performance on browsers


Jim Gaynor reported these results of his runs of the Sunspider Javscript benchmarks on various browsers.

If you’re working in sites that make lots of use of Javascript (and who isn’t these days?), looks like the best performance on Windows by far is in Google’s new Chrome browser. The differences are much less pronounced among Mac browsers.

  1. Glad you found that useful, Oren.

    For the other readers: the Windows versions were tested on a Latitude D620 2GHz Core 2 Duo with 2GB of RAM, running Windows XP SP3. The Mac versions were tested on a MacBook Pro 15″ 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo with 3GB of RAM, MacOS X 10.5.4.

    The Webkit and Chrome builds shown are all using the V8 javascript engine developed by Google.
