Benchmark Results: Standards Testing
As usual, the HTML5.com and CSS3 Selectors Test will not be affecting the final results based on pure speed. The Acid 3 Pass/Fail scores will be combined with the Acid 3 Speed results to determine placing for that test.
HTML5Test.com provided the same outcome on Ubuntu 10.04 as on Windows 7. The relative placing also remains the same, with Chrome taking the lead ahead of Opera, followed by Firefox.
CSS3 Selectors Test
Firefox again takes the lead in the CSS3 Selector Test, but three points shy of its Windows counterpart. The Linux versions of Chrome and Opera match their Windows 7 scores of 574, again creating a tie.
Acid 3 Pass/Fail
The Acid 3 scores from Windows are unchanged in the Linux version of the browsers. Both Chrome and Opera pull off perfect scores of 100, while Mozilla Firefox again achieves a score of 94, cementing its third-place finish.
Acid 3 Speed
Only browsers that receive perfect scores (or that tie) will be tested for speed, in order to determine placing.
Chrome finishes the Acid 3 test and generates the same score as Opera, a split second faster than the Norwegian browser. This reverses their Windows 7 placing, though Chrome doesn't beat Opera in Linux by the sweet margin that Opera bested Chrome in Windows.
