It has only been a couple of months since the last Big Browser Benchmark but there has been enough changes to warrant a re-running the tests. There's also a new benchmark test to put the browsers through their paces.
Let's pit the leading browsers against four of the toughest benchmark tests available to see which one is triumphant. Here are the browsers that will be put through their paces:
•Chrome 23 (left in the listing for comparison with newer release)
•Firefox 16 (left in the listing for comparison with newer release)
•Internet Explorer 9 (32-bit)
•Internet Explorer 10 (32-bit)
Here are the tests that the browsers will face:
•RoboHornet: A Google-led open-source browser benchmark.
•Octane: Google's new benchmark, based on the V8 test suite.
All testing carried out on a Windows 7 (32-bit) machine, running a P8600 2.4GHz dual-core processor, 4GB RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics card.
