Q.E.D
just express your success!

Chrome vs Firefox vs Opera vs IE vs Safari (Chrome win!!)

I write this to fulfill my friend’s recent comment in “Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 is slowly booming”. I think that is no absolute winner here. It is up to you to choose. Each of these browser has each super-advantage. Which one is your best internet browser?

Here, i give you some consideration in several aspect:

1. Cold Start:

For cold start test, I run the programs (after windows finish loading) and then I measure time of loading until browser is ready for use. I measure 3 times and between any test I reset my pc. For other tests I also measured 3 times and then calculated average value… After first test, Chrome already jumped on the first place with unbolivable load of only 1,6 seconds. Opera was second with 3,7 second and surprise was Internet Explorer with just 0,1 second behind Opera. Safari started bad with very slow loading with over 10 seconds.

2. Warm Start
Warm start is the test when I run browser then turn it off and then start it again without turning or logging out from windows. I hardly got Chrome loading time in this case, since it was incredible fast. Safari, for a difference from last test, was now very fast to. Opera and Firefox are slower then first three.

Acid 2 is web standard compliance test. All browsers easily passed, but IE7 failed completely with ruining and deforming that poor face.

4. Acid 3 test
After easy job on ACID 2, neither one browser passed Acid 3 test. However Opera scored most points, ending it with the score of 85. Chrome was second with the score of 79. Some alpha and beta version of browser are already passing successfully this test…

5. CSS speed test
This test was taken from HowToCreate.co.uk!
Quote:
To test CSS rendering speed I use a CSS benchmark test devised by nontroppo. The test measures the time it takes the browser to render a page consisting of almost 2500 positioned DIVs. The page is stored locally, loaded once to pre-load it, then reloaded 3 times, and the average time taken for those three renderings. The page is the first page loaded after starting the browser (after logging out and in). All browsers took significantly longer during the initial load, which is why I discount this initial load, as it does not reflect the reality of normal rendering. Safari and Firefox headed clear victory here leaving behind Opera then Chrome and IE7.

6. Javascript speed
I assigned browsers to celtickane.com javascript speed test. Every browser is tested three times and then average speed is calculated. Chrome won again with Safari on second, Opera on third, Firefox on 4th and as expected IE7 on the last place.

7. Memory usage
I started every browser with one tab. Opened google.com and then checked with Chrome “memory usage option” how much every browser take memory. IE7 taked easy victory here probably because parts of the IE are in some other windows processes which are not counted. Safari taked shameful last place with using over 65 MB for loading only one page.

8. Setup Size
Opera used to have smallest installation file but now Firefox takes that place. Interesting thing is that if you dont need additional languages then Opera setup.exe is smaller then 6 mb, however since Opera gives this file for download by default then I took that file in count.

9. Options
Firefox got second win. By using extension firefox becomes very powerful tool. Main reason why people use it. Opera widgets are silly thing in relation to extensions and UserJS are ok but not good as Firefox Extensions. However this bring another conclusion, Firefox without extension is nothing. If you integrate to many extension then Firefox performance decrease significantly, almost 4-6 times… As I already mentioned this tests are conducted on Firefox without single extension. Just Out of the box. Even with that problem, Firefox easily take win here leaving Opera behind. This category gives also to Chrome first last place since Chrome in current stage looks like a hairless person :D

Conclusion and FINAL SCORE.
Opera do not have advantage any more. Instead of advantage it is neither anymore the fastest. Chrome is ahead, then Opera on second place and Firefox just behind it (depends on personal taste). Safari is ok browser but weaker then first three, and it looks that Apple marketing is just a bunch of lies. IE7 is the bad thing. Just like a IE6. But since people get it free with windows they still use it. If we counted Opera powers of customizing skins, moving elements (such as menus, buttons, toolbars, adressbar, statusbar, skins) then Opera would be easily be on first place…

For myself, I am going to stick with the Opera. Chrome, even if it is fastest, dont have some key capabilities. Probably people who use Firefox think the same as Opera fans…

Just i said before. that is no real winner here. It is up to you to choose. Each of these browser has each super-advantage. and which one is your best, it really depends on your performance computer and your style.
