Benchmark Results: Final Placing
When judging by pure speed, Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 is still the champ, taking in ten first-place finishes. This is despite being excluded from the WebGL tests, where second-place finisher Chrome 10 and third-place finisher Firefox 4 were guaranteed two extra first- or second-place spots each. Opera 11.01 drops to fourth and Safari 5.04, the oldest browser here, ranks last.
Chrome finishes first in our efficiency results; Firefox comes in a close second. Internet Explorer is third, followed by Safari and then Opera.
Rivals Google Chrome and Opera tie for first place in standards conformance. Another set of rivals tie for second place: Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Safari 5, the oldest browser in the WBGP, places third.
When you combine the placing from all three types of benchmarks, we get a mirror of the performance benchmark lineup. Internet Explorer 9 is still in the number-one spot. Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari also remain in their respective second-, third-, fourth-, and fifth place ranking.
