    I just got a ThinkPad w Quadro graphics, so I'm basically screwed for VA-API support :-(

    If you don't mind advertisements, Chrome.

    But since Google Chrome is dropping, or has dropped some ad filters, Firefox or SeaMonkey.

    For the moment anyway, I'll continue supporting the underdog, whats really needed is a vulkan based window manager with vulkan based browser acceleration. That be the golden ticket! OGL 2/3.1 is just too fat and old.
    No, what it needs is the promised optimization and get the overall focus that it deserves, the one for which several addons and customization options died for. While Vulkan is a logical step, we shouldn't rely on it to level the playing field... what will happen when Chromium does the same? it will be light years ahead of Firefox... again.

    Privacy is a nice plus, but we also need a highly performant browser.

    Edge chromium coming to Linux will be the last nail in the coffin for Firefox if Mozilla doesn't act quickly.

    I find Firefox slow , with a terrible UI.

    Honestly , just use brave. All the privacy but with the rock solid chromium rendering engine .

    Browser benchmarks for synthetic tests. OK. Someone gets to claim some kind of marketing victory. In everyday usage, there is no serious difference in performance between any of the major browsers.

    Firefox is the browser of choice for most Linux distributions for two good reasons: 1) it is not only open source, but also backed by a community that respects open community, and 2) it competes pretty well with the big corporate browsers in terms of features, usability, standards support, privacy, etc., even if it trades blows on certain features (like synthetic benchmarks).

    I'm glad Phoronix does these tests, keeps everyone on their toes. But I would choose Firefox even if it lost on all these benchmarks.

    StylleBench is one of the tests where Firefox leads and with WebRender there is of minor benefit.

    Thanks for the benchmarks, very interesting. Can I suggest that you consider also including something like Brave in future, not because its results will be interesting, but rather to remind visitors that there are good alternatives to Chrome using the same engine out there. I can't be alone with my concerns about Google's browser dominance and how they abuse it. Thanks for the consideration.

    Michael, why are you still testing Octane? It has been retired.
