Since last time, the following releases have occurred:
|Platform||Last Test||Today’s Test|
I performed all of these tests in a very similar environment as last time:
- ASC 2.0 build 354071 (
-debug=false -verbose-stacktraces=false -inline)
- 2.8 Ghz Intel Xeon W550
- Windows 7 SP1 64-bit
I assign “points” to each platform based on its performance ranking on each test. There are five platforms in this test, so the first place platform gets five points, the second platform gets four points, and so on. Say there is a three-way tie for first place. In that case, each tying platform gets five points and the next-best platform gets two points and the platform after it gets one point.
Here are the points awarded:
To compare these results to previous tests, let’s look at percentile of each platform’s points:
|Product||November 2012||April 2013||November 2013|
In using the same Blink engine as Google Chrome, Opera has made a huge leap forward in performance and now shares the lead with Google Chrome which maintains the top spot. Firefox has fallen from sharing the top spot to now being on-par with both Flash and Internet Explorer, neither of which substantially improved their performance since the last test. What happened to Firefox? If anyone knows, please let me know in the comments.
