So... forgive me if I'm being cynical here...

Google created a Browser Benchmark Program that makes it's own Chrome Browser come out at #1 on all tests all the time?

There's no conflict of interests or anything here, right?

Let me guess; if I run it I will get the best result with the Chrome Browser ?
Just another example of a product not being in contact with day-to-day users.

My clients rarely complain about the browser SPEED. They complain about problems opening a site or a website looking funny in one browser but ok in another.

How about we first make all browsers render content identically, THEN we can see who does it the fastest !!

I believe this was to benchmark the browser speed. If I'm not mistaken V8, which is what Octane is supposed to replace, never claimed to do anything about rendering HTML / CSS correctly. Methinks this test was meant for in-house testing before they released it publicly.

I'll still take Firefox over Google's data-mining any day.

As long as Google doesn't rig it to produce better results for Chrome, I'm all for it.

Either way, I won't stand for Google's data mining.

Most of the JS code used is available in clear text. So if your suspicious that Google rigged the test, you could search the code for places where it would check for the browser's user agent.
