    Phoronix: Firefox 69 / 70 Beta Against Chrome 76 On Ubuntu Linux

    With Firefox 69 released and Firefox 70 entering beta, here are some fresh web browser benchmarks between Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome from Ubuntu Linux. On the Firefox size, Firefox 68, 69, and 70 Beta were tested with and without WebRender being enabled and compared to Google's current Chrome 76 stable release.

    Nice.

    Brave browser and locally compiled Firefox 71 (Nightly version) will probably give you a better competition against Chrome, in my experience.

      Since Brave is Chromium-based, that shouldn't be too surprising.

        Hm, only improvements on the Webrender site (although impressive!). I wonder what happened to the new baseline interpreter work. From their own benchmarks, speedometer increased heavily on speed. Michael, can you check if that new baseline interpreter was already included in the test?

          I’m missing a WebGL benchmark here… Firefox is dramatically losing out against Chromium in WebGL performance on Linux. It didn’t get any better over the years.

            Since the webextension-based NoScript is working on Chrome/ium, I have really nothing else holding me back to Firefox.

            All other extensions I need are cross-browser too, so I can freely move over now. And yes this matters because Chromium builds in OpenSUSE have hardware acceleration enabled for video, while Firefox does not.

              Chrom{e,ium} might soon handicap ad blockers pretty badly. Do you know how this could affect NoScript? (Re: Manifest v3)

                Article could be about /r/Linux breaking down and its mods going haywire on users because of 69 jokes. More clicks, more money.

                As for Firefox, it's another point release that somehow got a full version bump for whatever reason, just like anything and everything since 4.0.

                  WebRender it's enabled by default on Linux ?

                    FTA: "From an Intel Core i9 7960X workstation with Radeon RX 550 graphics running Ubuntu 19.04, the official Linux x86_64 binaries of these different Chrome/Firefox releases were tested. The Firefox runs with WebRender were forced using the MOZ_WEBRENDER environment variable."
