    I think there is a problem with the Phoronix test suite on FreeBSD 12. I try to install the browser benchmarks and then it complains that pip3 is not installed. But py39-pip is installed and I think that's the only pip package available for FreeBSD 12.

      It's failing if not pip/pip3 in PATH, but I would suspect the browser benchmarks themselves likely would fail on FreeBSD depending upon how good or not the Linux binary compatibility layer is working out, etc... There's likely various test bugs and compatibility issues on BSDs outside of the tests I routinely use for articles.

        Chrome has some kind of weird problem on FreeBSD right now, and Edge has the same problem, a certain process is using a lot of CPU. That's not really going to be a meaningful comparison. Maybe Firefox can be compared.

        The specific benchmark I am interested in is Maze Solver. Is there a webpage where I can do this benchmark with my browser? Is it the same bench as the standard test from the following website? https://testdrive-archive.azurewebsi...r/Default.html

        You did a benchmark comparison where you come to the conclusion that Linux is almost twice as fast as FreeBSD, but that is not correct according to my own tests. With Clear Linux I get 74.x in Speedometer 2.0 in Firefox, and with FreeBSD I get 89.7 in Brave through the Linux compatibility layer.

        On Windows, there's very little difference between Brave and Firefox in Speedometer 2.0. I feel like Brave on FreeBSD can be slightly faster than on Clear Linux. Some apps also launch faster on FreeBSD than on Clear Linux, so I feel like they're generally much closer together in performance than what you've found.

          I think I did the 'Maze Resolver' test correctly. This is my result: https://i.ibb.co/MGd6G63/Screenshot-...7-09-07-55.png

          Your results with the 3970X (32 core): https://www.phoronix.com/review/chrome-80-benchmarks/4
          Your results with the 5950X: https://www.phoronix.com/news/Firefox-95-Chrome-97

          An i3 3240 beats expensive and much newer 16 and 32 core CPUs here.

          Based on my results, I can say that Brave in FreeBSD is competitive with Clear Linux in Speedometer 2.0, JetStream 2, Kraken 1.1 and Maze Resolver and many other benchmarks.

          Overall, I can say that despite the old and cheap hardware, the system with the XFCE desktop is extremely snappy and has a similar day-to-day productivity in the most common situations as the latest MacBook Pro notebooks.

          Would you like me to install Clear Linux on my system to do a comprehensive comparison with FreeBSD on this specific hardware?‚Äč
