Firefox 69 Beta On Linux Bringing Better Performance
In JetStream the performance improved under Firefox 68.0 but did pull back to Firefox 67 levels with the current Firefox 69.0 beta.
With CanvasMark is where we can finally see WebRender taking off thanks to its DOM interactions. WebRender on Firefox 69 yields a 9% performance increase compared to Firefox out-of-the-box currently on Linux.
Or in the MotionMark benchmark is where the WebRender performance has really exploded since Firefox 68 and continued to rise with the 69.0 beta.
The Speedometer browser benchmark performance only increased faintly on the newer releases.
For those curious what the geometric mean looks like for averaging all of these Firefox web browser benchmarks, here is that data.
Firefox 69.0 is expected to be released on 3 September and brings WebRender enhancements, disabling the Adobe Flash plug-in by default, adds a password generator, and various other web developer enhancements being tackled.
