GOOGLE CHROME4

"We are reviewing what has to be one of the fastest Browsers ever released the Google Chrome4. We are comparing the latest Google Chrome4 against one of the best Browsers available the Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3. Both the Google Chrome4 and Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3 are clearly superior to the Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 which the Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3 beat so badly in a previous review so it will be an interesting fight. The Google Chrome4 has the advantage of being very quick with excellent Javascipt performance while the Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3 might be older but still offers very good performance with very excellent security. We will be testing the Google Chrome4 and Mozilla Firefox 3.6.3 using the following software:- Peacekeeper the Browser Benchmark, V8 Benchmark Suite V5, Sunspider Javascript Benchmark, Acid3 and some custom test which will test the Browsers Start Up Speed, Amount of Memory used by the Browser with 1 Tab or 10 Tabs and the speed at which the Browser can create the XML Sitemap used with Ultimatehardware.net."

CHROME

GOOGLE CHROME 4 FEATURES

"Tabs and Stability - Chrome is built for stability. If an individual tab freezes or crashes, the other tabs are unaffected. You can also arrange your tabs however you wish - quickly and easily."

"Safe Browsing - Chrome will show you a warning message before you visit a site that is suspected of containing malware or phishing. A phishing attack takes place when someone masquerades as someone else to trick you into sharing personal or other sensitive information with them, usually through a fake website. Malware, on the other hand, is software installed on your machine, often without your knowledge, and is designed to harm your computer or potentially steal information from your computer. With Safe Browsing technology enabled in Chrome, if you encounter a website suspected of containing phishing or malware as you browse the web, you will see a warning page like the one below"

"Google Chrome Extensions - Extensions are little programmes which add useful features to your browser. Extensions can provide useful alerts and notifications, let you access your favourite web apps or news sources easily and improve the ease of online tasks such as browsing photos, getting directions or shopping."

"Translation in the browser - Chrome is the first browser to incorporate machine translation in the browser itself, without requiring additional plug-ins or extensions. When the language on the web page does not match the language preferences set in the browser, Chrome will automatically ask to translate the web page into your preferred language. Learn more about setting language preferences in Chrome or using the translation feature in Chrome."

"Themes - Customise your browser with themes from artists around the world. Learn more about adding themes to the browser or preview a few Chrome artist themes."

"Omnibox - Use the Omnibox to type both web addresses and searches in Chrome."

"New Tab page - Visit your favourite websites easily from the New Tab page. When you open a new tab, the sites that you visit most often are readily available."

"Incognito mode - When you don't want your website visits to be recorded in your browser history, you can browse in incognito mode. (A handy feature for planning surprise gifts and birthdays!)"

"Fast to run web applications - Under the hood, Chrome is fitted with V8, a more powerful JavaScript engine that we built to run complex web applications with lightning speed. With every new release, Chrome continues to improve in JavaScript performance. You can test JavaScript speed in the browser with the V8 and SunSpider benchmarks. As web applications that we use every day become more dynamic, browsers need to be able to construct and change elements on web pages as quickly as possible. This ability is measured by Mozilla's Dromeao DOM Core Tests. Just like JavaScript performance, Chrome continues to improve DOM Core performance scores with every new release."

MOZILLA FIREFOX 3.6 FEATURES

"Super Speed - Fasten your seatbelt: Firefox includes the TraceMonkey JavaScript engine, which gives the browser dramatically better performance than ever before. Firefox has always been fast, but this is the fastest Firefox ever (more than twice as fast as Firefox 3, and ten times as fast as Firefox 2), meaning Web applications like email, photo sites, online word processors and more will feel snappier and more responsive."

"Over 6,000 ways to customize - The sky's the limit with a growing library of over 6,000 Firefox add-ons, little extras you choose to download and install for a browser that works your way. Manage online auctions, upload digital photos, see the weather forecast in a glance and listen to music all from the convenience of your browser. There's no need to open a new window or tab for each task. If you're not sure where to begin, try Fashion Your Firefox a handy Web application that recommends add ons based on your interests."

"Instant Web Site ID - Want to be extra sure about a site's legitimacy before you make a purchase? Click on a site favicon for an instant identity overview. Another click digs deeper: how many times have you visited? Are your passwords saved? Check up on suspicious sites, avoid Web forgeries and make sure a site is what it claims to be."

"Private Browsing - Sometimes it's nice to go undercover. When this feature is enabled, you won't leave a single browsing fingerprint behind for others to discover. You can slip in and out of private browsing mode quickly, so it's easy to return to what you were doing before as if nothing ever happened (you can also browse privately all the time). It's great if you're doing your online banking on a shared computer or checking email from an Internet café."

"Anti-Malware - Firefox protects you from viruses, worms, trojan horses and spyware. If you accidentally access an attack site, it will warn you away from the site and tell you why it isn't safe to use."

"Anti-Phishing - Shop and do business safely on the Internet. Firefox gets a fresh update of web forgery sites 48 times in a day, so if you try to visit a fraudulent site that's pretending to be a site you trust (like your bank), a browser message big as life will stop you."

"Outdated Plug - Some web pages require that you install small applications called plugins to watch videos, play games or view documents. These plugins are written by other companies, and it can be hard to make sure they're always up to date. Since outdated plugins are a security risk, Firefox will let you know when you have a plugin that's vulnerable to attack and direct you to the right site to get the updated."

"Pop-Up Blocker - Banish pop-ups (and pop-under windows) from your surfing experience once and for all. Or, find a happy medium choose to view blocked pop-ups or create an allow list of sites whose pop-ups you're okay with seeing."

"Dress Up Your Firefox with Personas - We've enhanced our themes to give you access to thousands of lightweight browser themes, meaning you can change the look of your Firefox to practically anything with a single click. Choose anything from simple designs to colorful patterns to content from partners like Harry Potter, Bob Marley or Lance Armstrong's LiveStrong Foundation."
