    Phoronix: Firefox vs. Chrome Browser Performance On Intel Ice Lake + Power/Memory Usage Tests

    Using Firefox 70 (including WebRender) and Google Chrome 78, here are our latest round of Linux web browser benchmarks tested on the Dell XPS Ice Lake laptop. Making this round of Linux browser benchmarking more interesting is also including power consumption and RAM usage metrics for the different browser benchmarks.

    So. As per usual?
    Firefox vs slightly faster/better Chrome. Only the last one sold it's soul to the devil to gain an advantage?
    Chrome is keeping it's end of the deal by sending more souls back to the devil.

      No Javascript changes in Firefox yield no differences in Javascript benchmarks.

      Only one benchmark were really gui stuff is done and Webrender does fine there.

      Not much to see.

          It's good to see Firefox becomes more competitive in performance.

                Chromium's advantages on speed, CPU usage, RAM usage, all fit with all the tests I've done over the last few years.

                However, regarding battery savings, it has always disappointed me the fact that Chromium very constantly forces writes to the disk with fsync() (it can be easily verified with trace-cmd and kernelshark). There are ~10 year old bug reports on this, and nobody ever cared.

                  Pretty useless memory usage measurements.
                  Anyone browsing without using multiple tabs here?

                    If the hardware has limitations, it is a hardware problem and the differences between browsers are trivial. So better to navigate decently with one or two tabs open, than to flood the PC with 30 tabs.
                    Edit Otherwise, memory consumption is not a big problem on modern devices.
