Opera 10.70 Is Faster Than Chrome 7!

JavaScript Benchmark< credit >

Browser war is ON again! Internet Explorer 9 first beta has got some amazing features. Still IE9 is lagging behind as it is just a initial beta as compared lot of beta versions by Firefox and nightly builds by Chrome and Opera. Well Firefox got chromified. And Google Chrome / Chromium 7 is updating its feature to match IE9 and Firefox!

Many things are happening around. On one side Chrome 7 topped HTML5 test and other side Opera 10.70 beta left behind other browsers in Karken’s JavaScript benchmark.

According to our latest SunSpider benchmark we got one more shocking news for you. The Sunspider test result indicates that Opera 10.70 has crossed Chrome 7 long hold top spot in SunSpider benchmark. Following are the latest SunSpider test results,

The scores shown above clearly tells that Opera 10.70 beta is running faster than latest Chromium 7.0.360.0 JavaScript engine. The shocking news is Firefox 4 beta 7-pre version merged with JaegerMonkey/TraceMonkey JavaScript engine is still lagging behind and no where in competition.

Recent result of Karken JavaScript benchmark also showed Opera 10.70 beating other browsers. Final answer is still on hold until we get final browser version.

    For me speed doesn't matter. Usability is the important factor for and I would prefer Firefox as the best web browser based on this factor and I am loving it.

    Nice! However, Chrome just feels more "sleek" and more polished than Opera.

    • Vinay Gowda

      Me too agree with you buddy :) Lets see how Google will reply for this.

      Nice hear from one more Chrome lover :)

    Firefox is the slowest & Opera is the fastest. Even faster than chrome. I can't believe it. Though I like Opera's Elegant design :P
