    Indeed... Lets run software to benchmark how fast software is.... WoW...

    Safari, fast but doesn't work with a LOT of stuff...
    Firefox, quick but has it's own annoyances..
    IE, Internet Exploiter, but works with about everything..

    The list goes on and on and on..

    From my perspective :

    Safari 3 & 4 speedy but has problems with some websites

    Firefox 1,2,3, i never had any problems with this browser.

    Opera ,had many crashes with Flash

    Internet Explorer 6,7 , worst POS ever made , one window crashes every other module in browser, doesn't work good with CSS ,doesn't support CSS, isn't compatible with web standards, stupid activeX. (version 8 Beta isn't any better then the 6,7 ver.)

    This is another of many benchmarks.

    Like all benchmarks, it depends on your hardware, software, temperatures, clocks, yourself and about 1 million other variables.

    We can shrug this off because we are thick, or we can throw it into the collection of benchmarking tools and take it into consideration and nothing more, either option and the unmentioned 3rd is upto the individual, his/her past experiences and knowledge base.

    When i get home, ill have to download it and look up some release notes, maybe try to find some paperwork on the engine and what it specifically is checking for.

    Beta product benchmarks should be ignored from official results and only used as an expectation. Safari has always been more stable and faster for me, but it lacks what i need. I must be one of the rare lucky ones that did his research into the Ie browser, made some minor modifications, constantly edits the hosts file and has never ever had a single crash or been unable to do anything like watch a movie or play a shitty flash game. Obviously i use the browser several times per day etc etc. As for its speed, well, everything can always be faster, but the difference is too minimal to risk using a less secure/stable/able browser.

    Multicore utilizing browsers are a MUST. Im sure that it will only be a matter of time before streamprocessing gets involved and throws these futuremark scores out the window.

    It's an interesting test for browsers on your own machine. Thanks to this thread, I've downloaded just about all of them lol.

    Ummm, for starters, this futuremark peacemaker benchmark doest run on the new Safari, UNLESS you download Java. Safari IS able to run anything and everything, if you make it do so, but that goes the same with all browsers, just need to be a smart cookie for the less competant browsers.

    So when i ran my benchmarks, Safari FAILED in accordance to my means of standard benchmarking and futuremarks peacemaker.

    As a standard browser, without plugins or updates or addons, browsers should run the benchmark.

    Go ask a mac tech...... Safari has the most problems accessing webpages and properly displaying them, even with the proper plugins.

    Firefox, try Acua's webpage, along others, I just remember that one well..

    IE... Well it just sucks

    There is a reason I have Firefox and Opera on my computers.

    in reality to use java u need to download java runtime enviroment installer, without it your system cant run anything java.

    flash also requiers you install flashplayer.


    so your complaint about having to download them is........silly.

    for those intrested heres a link to the latist java build(been running it for months)
    http://download.java.net/jdk7/binaries/

    and if you cant get some browsers to play flash stuff the trick to get that working is easy

    go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash run FlashUtil10b.exe and NPSWF32_FlashUtil.exe

    that should do the trick for you its worked for everybody else i know when safari,chrome,opera,ff and even IE stoped/wouldnt work with flash :)

    when was the last time you tryed safari for windows?

    my experiance is that 3 and 4 havent given me any problems other then the activeX requiered sites, and those are locked to IE if u dont want to hack other browers to make them less secure by enabling activeX in them.

    Futuremark find a new way , to cause new anxiety about upgrading to users .
    And also found a new way to push users , to update the Java engine ...
    If i was Java corp .. i would pay good money just for that, as advertising .

    The funny part .... at this financially hard moments ...
    nothing in the world can do that . "cause new anxiety about upgrading"
    :laugh:


    I run both IE and Firefox ..
    Its good to see Firefox doing three times faster the job .

    The highest possible score does not bother me , i do not use the Internet explorers for gaming .. do you ? :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :nutkick:

    went from 1362 to 1405 by upgrading chrome to 2.0. not a huge increase but I'll take what I can get.

    Chrome just looks so much better and in my opinion has a better layout than Safari. I've use both and safari just has too much grey for me. Also chrome is now starting to support plugins so there really is no downside to it for me.

    This is just sad. I did this at work and have the lowest score for this thread so far.

    IE 6
    Intel Pentium D 3.4GHz
    2GB memory
    Win XP SP2

    Scored a 124!

    OMG!
