Starting out with the long-standing ARES-6 benchmark, Chrome 79 still takes just half the time to complete as Firefox.

In Kraken, Firefox is faster but then again this is a Mozilla JavaScript benchmark so not too surprising.

Meanwhile with the aging Octane benchmark, Chrome 79 returns to being much faster... From Firefox 71 to Firefox 72, we aren't seeing much change in performance at least with their Linux builds.

WebXPRT is one of the few benchmarks where enabling WebRender is consistently leading to slightly lower performance but at least here Firefox is outperforming Google Chrome.
