CHROME 62 VS FIREFOX 56

"We compare Chrome 62 vs Firefox 56 to find out which is the fastest browser using Html5, Octane and Sunspider with Windows 10."

CHROME

CHROME 62

"Recommendation: Testing for Google Chrome 62 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 62 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."

"The build of Chrome 62 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 62 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 62 is for the new Macbook Pro; the current build of Chrome 62 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."

FIREFOX 56

"Today's release gives Firefox users a better experience with features like Firefox Screenshots, Send Tabs, and more control over the browser with an improved (and searchable) preferences section. It also includes performance improvements that move us closer to our biggest release of the year, coming in November."

"Users running Firefox for Windows over a Remote Desktop Connection (RDP) may find that audio playback is disabled due to increased security restrictions. Learn how to mitigate this issue until it is corrected in an upcoming release."

"Startup crashes with 64-bit Firefox on Windows 7, for users of Lenovo's OneKey Theater software for IdeaPad laptops. To fix this crash, please re-install 32-bit Firefox."
