Firefox 3.5 benchmarked, not as fast as Chrome

The results are in from benchmarks of Firefox 3.5, performed by ZDNet.

The benchmarks test all the main browsers from Google Chrome, Safari 4, Firefox 3.5, Firefox 3.0.5, Opera 10 Alpha and Internet Explorer 8. Each browser was put through three tests including SunSpider javascript benchmark, V8 Benchmark Suite and finally the ACID 3 test.

Firefox 3.5 was built for speed and performance, compared to previous versions of Firefox. Firefox 3.5 performed better than Firefox 3.0.5 and Internet Explorer 8 in all three categories.

From the graphs, it is clear to see that Google Chrome performed the best overall, followed shortly by Safari 4 and then Firefox 3.5. Firefox 3.5 scored a 93 on the ACID 3 test, falling shortly behind Google Chrome, Safari and Opera 10 alpha, all scoring a perfect 100.

Firefox 3.5 is fast and speedy, but it's still lacking the speed of Google Chrome or Safari 4 in terms of performance benchmarks.
