441 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  wierdo124
Hey guys. Today i took the liberty to test out two browsers speeds in many fashions. I've been using IE8 lately so i can get a better feel. I do like my firefox addons, but such is life. Anyway. This post will tell you about the speeds of Firefox 3.5 and IE8.

The setup:
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Gigabyte P35 DS3L
Core 2 Duo E8400
4GB OCZ Fatal1ty

CCleaner was ran before the tests so everything was clean. Test were ran while GPU folding, with task manager reporting 67 processes, with 37% memory usage. Firefox did have addons, but ABP was DISABLED so that wouldn't interfere.

Lets start off with the Acid3 Test.


Internet Explorer 8

We obviously have a clear winner there.

It may change though with the page loading/starting results. Lets take a look:

And a graph:

That's it for now, if you want more tests let me know
Chrome and Safari will be coming soon
