maybe this way Opera will get the attention that it needs ... always was in the back FF just because ppl said is better not even taking into consideration any alternative.

Crytek should make a web version of Crysis, for benchmarking web browser.

I don't care about the speed. Few milliseconds aren't even perceptible.
Many things in Chrome bothers me, one big example is the Add ons. Chrome's Add Block sucks compared to Firefox, i tried it so many times and it really bugs up many sites. Not to mention the idiotic impossibility to change temp folder in Chrome, without the silly commands on the shortcut.
Way too many things, which let me stick with good old Firefox.

yes you can... you just need lots of open tabs, the more tabs you have open the slower the browser goes. firefox for me right now, cant play any video due to 600ish tabs open. chrome can still play video with about 70 tabs open. opera... well... it wont install right, and the version i have is annoying, and i cant find the setting to make it not annoying.

While Safari does not look that great on a PC, Apple shines on the iPad 2, which leads the benchmark results on tablets, followed by the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the Acer Iconia W500, the iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S2.

The Iconia W500 is a Windows 7 tablet. :\ does that even count?

Yeah it's a great benchmark when it ranks Chrome TWICE as high as Firefox even though in the real-world there's practically no difference.

Wouldn't be surprised if Google "lent" Futuremark some of their engineers just to make sure the results would be drastically skewed.

You seriously need to go outside if you think having 50+ tabs open is normal. Let alone 600 (what is that like 40 rows?!). Mozilla won't and shouldn't waste their time trying to memory optimize for absurd scenarios like yours.

I still like IE best by far. These millisecond differences are completely pointless. Sure Chrome is microsecond faster but it has few features and the interface is so minimilast that it pisses me off as it takes forver to find things I use constantly and doesn't have many features. IE is enterprise worthy with anything an IT department will need to manage their network for example.... well, those hard hitting features obviously require more code and thus miroseconds more time to run. These browser wars are so dumb.

Actually when you are doing researches you can have like ~60 tabs opened.

These benchmarks are inaccurate. Firefox was about to get the highest score, then it took an arrow in the knee.

It doesn't really matter - in real life usage, you don't notice the difference much. I use Firefox 8 because I like the addons and such (just install the compatibility reporter and it won't disable them because they aren't "compatible").

Still doesn't make it normal :p  and 600 tabs is insane no matter what you are doing.

Have you run it? My IE9 and Firefox and Nightly couldn't complete some of the tests and scored pretty low. Then I tried chrome, it is more compatible so it scores more.
Seems stupidly bias...

More compatible = Higher score..
Maybe because that's part of the test? lol

I can't stand Chrome or Opera's UI. Firefox works better than IE which has the best UI; I end up using them both simultaneously.

That may be the case, but I certainly dont want Google Android or Chrome to be running in every device I have. I want some diversity; and I don't consider Apple and its crap drm infested hardware or Safari browser an option. So thanks but not thanks Google. I am concerned about your taking over. So I use Firefox.

Chrome 18 scored 1105 on a single AM2 2GHz Athlon64 X2 with 1.5GB single-channel DDR2 on Fedora 16.

Congratulations, you scored a little less than three times what I scored with what I'd call more than 5 times the machine than I have. You should feel proud. ;) 

Though, to be fair, I'm sure Chrome has improved a good bit since...two months ago.
