FIREFOX 7.0 VS FIREFOX 6.0

"We compare the Firefox 7.0 to Firefox 6.0 to find out which is the fastest with demanding Internet sites such as Peacekeeper, Sunspider Javascript Benchmark and V8 Benchmark Suite V6. We have decided to test Firefox 7.0 and Firefox 6.0 using Windows XP to show which of the browsers perform best with Windows XP. Peacekeeper the Browser Benchmark is a graphically intensive Benchmark which will really show what the browsers can do."

FIREFOX 7.0 FIREFOX 6.0

COMMENT - "Memory useage was alway a downside with Firefox 6.0 when lots of Tabs are open. Mozilla worked very hard and made Firefox 7.0 much more Memory Friendly. As you can see the improvement is very good with Firefox 7.0 using 33% less Memory than Firefox 6.0."


FINAL RESULT

COMMENT - "Firefox 7.0 delivered some solid performances especially with Memory with Tabs, Sunspider and V8. Peacekeeper Result was a bit disappointing. Firefox 7.0 was released in a fairly short time after the release of Firefox 6.0. The problem with Firefox 6.0 is the Memory Management problems which thankfully have been fixed with Firefox 7.0. Hopefully Mozilla can further decrease the Memory useage of Firefox 8.0. If you want a speedy Browser which has good Memory Management then Firefox 7.0 is the one to get."
