Firefox 70 Linux Performance, Firefox 70 vs. Chrome 78 Benchmarks

Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 23 October 2019. Page 5 of 5. 20 Comments

Chrome 78 carries some hefty wins over Firefox 70 with WebRender on Linux. While these tests were done with an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X box, with our Intel-based Linux browser tests we still see similar outcomes with Chrome generally leading handedly in these browser benchmarks. The only slight wins for Firefox 70 were with WebXPRT and Jetstream.

If taking the geometric mean of all the browser benchmark runs between the competing browsers, Chrome 78 out-of-the-box came out to be 34% faster than Firefox 70.0 with WebRender enabled.
