With the HTML5 CanvasMark, Chrome 75 won by a wide margin but at least Firefox 68 is inching closer.

When looking at the geometric mean across these Linux browser benchmarks carried out, Firefox 68 Beta is shaping up to be 16% or so faster than the current stable Firefox 67.0. If enabling WebRender, that went up to 27%. But with even those gains, Chrome 75 still came out to 45% faster than that best performing Firefox configuration or 85% compared to the stock Firefox 67 experience.
