A Real World HTML 5 Benchmark 163

Posted by timothy

KidCompy writes "The newest browsers boast huge performance improvements, but how much do you trust benchmarks trotted out to prove those claims? Do they reflect the real uses to which developers will put HTML 5 and JavaScript? We've extracted several benchmarks from our existing programs to measure actual versus theoretical performance."

    When Chrome is spoofing to anyone not specifically testing for Chrome, it is hard to blame anyone misdetecting them.

    That's nothing. Both Safari and IE report as Firefox. The "Mozilla/" in the user agent string represents Netscape Navigator, and the last versions of Netscape (8 and 9) were customized versions of Firefox. Moreover, WebKit browsers such as Safari and Chrome spoof as Konqueror and specifically recent versions of Firefox ("KHTML, like Gecko")

    MacBook Pro mid 2010 i5 2.4GHz, latest public browser versions

    Firefox: 5055 / window minimized: 4930
    Safari: 10628 / 11210
    Opera: 9121 / 9487
    Chrome: 10903 / 11035

    On virtualized Windows XP home SP3 (Parallels desktop 6):

    Firefox: 5878 / 6749
    Opera: 9170 / 9734
    ie 8: 1463 / 1440
    Chrome: 10920 / 11392

    Another reference point, virtualized Ubuntu 10.10

    Firefox: 5165 / 6040
    Chrome: 10769 / 11064
    Opera: 8942 / 9500

    Chrome was identified as safari 534.10 on all OS's. The results seem to fluctuate a bit from run to run, from 10 to 1500 points (i did some of the tests two - three times). It seems I get different results each time the test is run.
