Firefox takes considerably longer to load pages.
I use chrome but did you know that chrome use THE SAME PLUGINS AS FIREFOx
Oh and why a bandwidght test you just want to see wich one is draining more Internet?
Yes firefox eats more internet then chrome.... Thats what you get for using such a huge ass GUI.
Music historian here to please and displease,learning to teach all you peeps,so stop by the music part of the forum,and ask the question to your needs.
Speedtest uses flash, it's independent on browser speed. Derp.
What you're looking for are browser benchmarks that test rendering, js etc. Overall Chrome should beat firefox though
I'll do a quick SunSpider in a sec.
Guess FF beats Chrome @Sunspider now. Though the stable versions of either browser are far more optimized and the results could be hella different. Oh and Chrome generally tends to render faster and better than FF, at least imo.
and it would have been enough to skew the results in favor of Firefox?
The results are already in favour of FF right now. But you must take into account that I'm running nightly builds of both browsers. And had I run it with my main Chrome installation (not the nightly) it would probably have never even finished
