    Yes, discordian is right!

    Firefox is a LOT better on any of those things he mentioned. Beside many others...
    I really don't understand why everybody keeps using chrome...

    In fact, around here, almost only IT people uses Firefox... every no-IT uses Chrome. Go figure...

    Even if Firefox would be noticeable worst, just for the privacy/no-google thing i would keep on using it.

    Funny thing, I have an angularjs 1.x SPA which in some cases generate very large pages (tables/lot of inputs/etc) - Chrome barely usable with them, while FF is still rather smooth. I'll not argue about poor page design or JS code quality, but with code as is FF works faster for users of this SPA.

    Webrender isn't enabled in these tests.. .so what are you on about? This is mostly still the C++ codebase.

    As can be seen here Rust trades blows pretty well with C++ https://benchmarksgame-team.pages.de.../rust-gpp.html

    I've use a wide variety of browsers, but lately have been using Firefox because on my Windows 10 PC with an i5-7600K Firefox is much faster than Chrome. And Webrender is going to be coming out in FF 67 if it doesn't get delayed. I ran Webrender in nightly and it's much faster than the old renderer. On my Ubuntu I usually use FF so I can sync everything with my Windows PC, but on Ubuntu it seems Chrome is faster than FF.

    Michael, I'm 99% certain Clear Linux uses the official Mozilla binary and does not compile Firefox at all. Their package makes it install correctly, but it is not a custom build. That's why there isn't any performance difference.

    it would be nice if firefox nightly was added as that would show the performance benefits that upcoming webrender and other improvements are going to make, maybe even chrome nightly too.

    If Firefox used proper C or C++ instead of that crap called Rust, it would easily beat Chrome. Easily.

    Mikael, can you also run a benchmark on privacy? Firefox might be slower (in benchmarks) but in real world browsing it is not that bad. And it doesn't spy on you.
