Chrome performance going up!


I'm pleasantly surprised by the continuing advances in performance of the Chrome browser. Not only did it leave Firefox 3.6 in the dust, but it keeps getting better from one day to another. From FutureMark's Peacekeeper benchmark:

  • 5.0 Beta build: 3110
  • 6.0 Dev build: 3544
  • 6.0 Nightly build (Chromium): 3826
It's almost catching up with my girlfriend's score, which is the stable version, but a 44% faster CPU (her Core 2 Duo 2.40GHz vs my Core Duo 1.66GHz).

Firefox has improved some as well (in the image above, FF 3.0's score is from my girlfriend's computer), but it has lots of catching up to do...

Oh, I almost forgot. Watch this funny Chrome ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCgQDjiotG0
