TL:DR: Google Chrome has pulled ahead of Webkit in terms of JS speed and feature completeness, however, it hasn’t utilized the graphics card well enough on the Mac.
It’s been nearly five months since I last did one of these. In that time, Chrome has gone from v6 to v8, Webkit has had close to 10,000 commits, and Minefield has gotten even closer to being released as Firefox 4.
So I thought it was about time that I tested the latest versions of them again. This time around, I added a few additional tests. HTML 5 is quite a hot topic right now, so is rendering on the graphics card. So I’ve added a few tests for that, to see how each is faring.
