CHROME 59 VS OPERA 46

"We compare Chrome 59 vs Opera 46 to find out which is the fastest browser using Html5, Octane and Sunspider with Windows 10."

CHROME

CHROME 59

"Recommendation: Testing for Google Chrome 59 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."

"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 59 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."

"Another key feature that seems to be guaranteed with the release of Chrome 59 is for the new Macbook Pro; the current build of Chrome 59 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."

"The build of Chrome 59 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 59 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."

OPERA 46

"Opera 46 For more than ten years, the Opera browser's default setting has been to let you start where you left off. Now, the new smarter startup sequence makes the browser start up faster by prioritizing which of the previously used tabs are likely to be most important for you. As such, the most recently active tab and any pinned tabs will load first, while less important tabs will be loaded with decreased priority. For most users, this will feel like the tabs are opened immediately, without waiting time with Opera 46."

"Opera 46 now detects which video codec can be hardware accelerated and tries to choose that codec when doing video conferencing via WebRTC (this includes services such as Google Hangouts). This should save a lot of CPU and battery for our laptop using, video conferencing hobnobbers out there! And, even if the Opera browser can't find a hardware accelerated codec, it will now try to limit the pixel count when in battery saving mode to reduce CPU usage with Opera 46."

"Opera 46 Test results show an average improvement of 86% when testing startup time with more than 42 tabs open in the previous sessions with Opera 46."

"Opera 46 solution for you that makes your browsing faster Opera 46 includes a new, smarter startup sequence that cuts away almost all the wait time, no matter how many tabs you open with Opera 46."

"Opera 46 We all know the feeling. You want to check out your favorite website, but when you open your laptop or turn on your computer, you realize the browser is closed. You click on the browser icon and then have to wait while the browser opens all your previously opened sites with Opera 46."

"Opera 46 This year, we have stepped up the game for browsers and cut as many pain points for users as possible. That's why we have introduced unique features like VPN, native ad blocker, battery saver and video pop out. For this release, we devote our focus to speed and performance. Here are some other improvements that make Opera more powerful than ever before with Opera 46."
