    Browser speed

    Heya

    Here is alittle something that i would like to share with you. I'm currently working on a ajax-webpage that will have to show quite alot of table elements and i was benchmarking the most common browsers.

    Total element 24372

    Elements per second

    Opera = 13903 (1.753 sec)
    Firefox = 10146.5 (2.402 sec)
    Chrome = 3730 (6.534 sec)

    IE7 = 483.8 (50.372 sec)
    Ok this might look shocking but let me explain, in Opera, Firefox and Chrome i can run code asyncronous. If i do this in IE the loadtime is insanly fast but the browser just ignores to load some of the information (The divs are left blank and the browser stops to load).

    Maybe someone should make a browser and donate it to Microsoft, it seems they could need some help, hehe

    Happy programming!

    Actually no - I've never seen a browser benchmark that didn't put IE dead last...

    Ha ha - yeah I saw that this morning too. "Microsoft's OWN speed tests". Though I'd bet that the other benchmarks that have come through Slashdot have been just a tad biased AGAINST IE so all's fair...

    There can never be a benchmark that covers all factors of a browser. Therefore I ignore all benchmarks and I use what I like.

    and w3m, links = 0 sec (without javascript of course).

    That's a clear winner in my opinion. I'm sure anyone could find a benchmark to suit their application and beat the others.

    telnet != browser, right?

    Both of my parent's computers are having a lot of problems with IE. They have to wait a long time for things on Ebay to even download or finish and it takes an increasingly longer time. 20 seconds just to load one page (and finally begin to scroll) is ridiculous. Firefox doesn't have that problem (though I have problems downloading things constantly without the download abruptly stopping without ever finishing).
