The Unity 3D folks have released some updated WebGL benchmark results for showing what web browsers are doing the best for accelerated graphics.

Unity's WebGL benchmarking with their latest engine and using the newest browsers (on Windows) found that Firefox 42 64-bit was the fastest shipping browser in most tests. Coming in second place was Microsoft's new Edge browser on Windows 10, but Internet Explorer 11 was by far the slowest. Safari and Chrome meanwhile were competing with one another behind Firefox 64-bit / Edge.

Compared to Unity's benchmarks from one year ago, they found an 18% performance increase with Firefox. Firefox 64-bit was also found to be significantly better than Firefox 32-bit for WebGL, likely to no surprise.

These WebGL browser benchmark results can be found via this Unity 3D blog post.
