Benchmarking Firefox 83 Nightly With "Warp" Against Google Chrome On Linux

Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 30 September 2020. Page 4 of 4. 65 Comments

When it comes to CSS style performance with StyleBench, Firefox remains much faster than Chrome albeit not one of the areas directly impacted by Warp.

The JavaScript Speedometer benchmark was one of the few areas actually showing a boost on this test system with Firefox 83.

With the WebAssembly (WASM) benchmarks is one of the areas where it remains a tight race between Firefox and Chrome at least under Linux.

We'll see if Warp remains enabled come Firefox 83 release time. In any case as this new JavaScript JIT code stabilizes I'll be back around with plenty more benchmarks. But saying this as a devout Firefox user since Firebird/Phoenix - Google Chrome is still delivering the leading performance on Linux.
