Waterfox 50: 21 November [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 391

post #3901 of 7267
Hi guys,

I've just speed-tested Waterfox 15.0 and Firefox 15.01 on two systems. I used this test:

Speed Battle
http://www.speed-battle.com

The test's homepage says:
Quote:
SPEED-BATTLE measures online the JavaScript speed of your browser and compares it with the results of all other visitors.

Test results depend on different parameters (like CPU, browser, plugins/addons, operating system, system memory, number and kind of processes running in parallel and many more). The test will give you a reference value for the performance of your soft- and hardware. For consistent results run it when all other activity of your computer is low.

I ran the tests several times on two Toshiba notebooks running 64-bit Windows 7. I monitored Windows Task Manager to be sure I tested when each system was idle.

To my surprise, Firefox was consistently faster than Waterfox by around 20%. Does this make sense?

Russkey extension is not working on 15.0. Seems like the last version has problems with cyrilic alphabets.

it originates from the difference in performance between 32-bit and 64-bit. to what is calculated (decoding, encoding), 64 bits is better. When it comes to managing characters, the 32-bit is better.

Okay, sometimes it's more than 20%. Try it yourself, though!

What kind of problems do you have? I have no problems with 11.4.402.278 (nor did I have problems with any previous version).

Haven't tried 11.5 beta yet (which is mainly planned as a bug-fix release).

I replicated that issue. FF 15.01is faster than both Chrome and Waterfox in this benchmark by a pretty large margin.

Sorry, I don't want to double-post, but I still have the problem in post #3843 on page 385. Google is behaving strange...

Edit: I got the "bad" add-on. It's a shame I can't use it anymore...

Clear cache/cookies/history. If it persists, change profile to new one.
