    Phoronix: Chrome 91 Benchmarks On Linux Showing Off Even Better Performance

    Chrome 91 released this week with WebAssembly SIMD by default, new JavaScript APIs, and other improvements. Plus there are also some performance improvements too, here are some benchmarks...

    Sparkplug should not make much of a difference in benchmarks as those mostly always should advance to Turbofan quite quickly, the big difference will be in actual websites that does not run the same JavaScript over and over and is similar to Firefoxs baseline compiler. When measuring browsers it's important to remember that they have very different performance characteristics over different workloads and that JavaScript heavy benchmarks have very little in common with normal browsing.

      Chrome don't works on Wayland natively, but Firefox works. Chrome Wayland support currently work-in-progress, but only with Ozone abstraction layer, that by the way have dozens of issues, during Firefox works on Wayland full natively and I don't see any issues. On benchmarks Chrome works about 2x faster, but on practice I don't see it during every day web browsing. I used Chrome during many years, but switched to Firefox for native Wayland support.

        I don't know why you'd think my cat Spark Plug would help in Chrome benchmarks either. He's much better with compression.

          "saves over 17 years of CPU time daily"

          Yeah, and at the same time you lose millennia while decoding videos on those CPUs. Any crappy PC or even portables like the PSP could decode YouTube on hardware back in early 2000s, then came google and changed codecs to some crappy vp8, and on Linux hw decoding with chrome(ium) still doesn't work at all.

            This photo leaves room for doubt regarding the recent claims of Sparkplug's impressive speed.

              Yes, the world would have been so much better if it was still on MPEG in 2021

                I see depression not compression, clearly the cat has been forced to use windows by it's IT department.

                  Looks more like Sparkplug is trying to think outside the box, but not quite making it.

                    The tests in this scenario are not limited to script performance, and the websites that people spend the most time on these days are web applications, which actually do benefit from JavaScript execution performance and memory efficiency by a huge margin.

                    The more silly excuses that people make for firefox, the slower it will be.

                    The one component that Firefox excels with generally, is their brand new CSS system, but the Chrome developers would never argue that top line stylesheet performance doesn't matter, they would think about how to match it instead.
