Google Chrome JavaScript Speed Test

Google’s new browser – Chrome – has a JavaScript engine called V8 that was built from scratch.  So, how fast is it?

I ran these tests http://mootools.net/slickspeed/ on IE, Firefox and Chrome.

Here are the results:

It looks like Chrome is about 13% faster than Firefox and 82% faster than IE 7.

All browsers are running on the same computer, so the hardware/os settings are irrelevant.  But if you are curious, it’s a Windows Vista 64-bit machine with 6 Gigs of RAM and a quad core chip.

[Update] If you are reading this in Chrome, the embedded document is broken.  I guess Google didn’t test there own sites.  It should look like this:

Instead it looks like this:

    • Regardless of how the test is created, it is still the same test on allbrowsers… This is not really a benchmark of how fast chrome is. It is arelative comparison between the browsers.
