CHROME 58 VS FIREFOX 53

"We compare Chrome 58 vs Firefox 53 to find out which is the fastest browser using Html5, Octane and Sunspider with Windows 10."

CHROME

CHROME 58

"The build of Chrome 58 brought with it new and improved features that we haven't seen before. General performance, visual and battery saving improvements are set to be made to the browser upon release, along with some minor bug fixes and vulnerability patches. The new beta version of Chrome 58 shows hints of the big redesign changes coming to Chrome with areas like History, Bookmarks, and potentially the extension page transformed to the Material Design. The standard "New Tab" page has now been fully removed, placing a "Suggested Articles" section on the page instead. Perhaps the biggest update, however, is the ability to run Chrome web apps in full screen, making web apps one step closer to feeling native."

"Another key feature that seems to be guaranteed with the release of Chrome 58 is for the new Macbook Pro; the current build of Chrome 58 supports the device's new Touch Bar. The implementation of this support, so far at least, seems to be similar to that of Apple's own Safari web browser, featuring escape, forward, backward, new tab, bookmark and refresh buttons that can be accessed at a simple touch of the bar. Also, tapping a search.URL button takes the user straight through to the URL field in the web browser. As of yet though, not much else has been done with the bar, but we expect to see some drastic improvements from here on out now the fundamentals are in place. Perhaps the likes of volume and media controls within Chrome, or gestures for inputs or actions may be coming soon."

"This new version of the world's most popular browser will be developing upon several of the power saving and performance enhancing features that were implemented in Chrome 57, such as the ability to "throttle" background tabs when not being used. Chrome 58 will be developing upon this, by limiting the timer for background tabs that are using power excessively, basically meaning the background tabs will go into a "power saver" mode. Supposedly, background tabs can use up to a third of the browser's power usage, possibly even more dependent on what content each tab has loaded, so this improvement should definitely benefit Chrome users on devices with limited power. Once fully implemented, background tabs will have a share of just 1% or less of an individual processor core."

"Recommendation: Testing for Google Chrome 58 should start as soon as possible, ensuring all features within any online applications work as planned within the Chrome browser for a smooth transition upon release. Any applications that feature support for the Apple Macbook Pro's Touch Bar should look at incorporating such features for Google Chrome users as well."

FIREFOX 53

"Firefox 53 Added support for WebGL 2, with advanced graphics rendering features like transform feedback, improved texturing capabilities, and a new sophisticated shading language in Firefox 53."

"Firefox 53 Improved video performance for users without GPU acceleration for less CPU usage and a better full screen experience with Firefox 53."

"Firefox 53 Displays percent above or below 100 percent when a user has changed the page zoom setting default with Firefox 53."

"Firefox 53 Playback video on more sites without plugins with WebM EME Support for Widevine on Windows and Mac with Firefox 53."

"Firefox 53 Added download protection for a large number of executable file types on Windows, Mac and Linux. Improved performance for SDK extensions using the SDK module loader with Firefox 53."

"Firefox 53 Added option to Find in page that allows users to limit search to whole words only. Increased availability of WebGL to more than 98 percent of users on Windows 7 and newer with Firefox 53."
