MOZILLA FIREFOX 3.6

"We compare the Mozilla Firefox 3.6 to the Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0 to find out which is the fastest with demanding Internet Applications such as Acid3, Sunspider Javascript Benchmark, V8 Benchmark Suite V5 and Peacekeeper the Browser Benchmark. We will also be testing the Browser 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. Both the Firefox 3.6 and Internet Explorer 8.0 are excellent Browsers offering some Powerful Features such as Private Browsing, TraceMonkey JavaScript Engine, Accelerators and other Technology."

FIREFOX 3.6 INTERNET EXPLORER 8

COMMENT - "After the poor Javascript Performance shown by the Internet Explorer 8 using V8 Benchmark Suite V5 this is the result I was expecting. The Firefox 3.6 beats the Internet Explorer 8 totally using the Peacekeeper Browser Benchmark by 72%. Especially disappointing is the Score of 0 for the Internet Explorer 8 with the Peacekeeper Browser Complex Graphics test."

FINAL RESULT

COMMENT - "It was clear victory for the Firefox 3.6 when compared to the Internet Explorer 8. The Internet Explorer 8 Browser is a secure reliable Browser but it's just not very fast especially with anything featuring Javascript which is very popular online. The Firefox 3.6 Browser is reliable, secure with Anti-Malware, Anti-Phishing and Private Browsing with Pop-Up Blocker. Firefox 3.6 has it all with good Javascript Performance Thrown in as well."
