Browser Wars — Acid3 Test: 4 enter, 2 leave


Above and below, the results of running the Acid3 Test with Camino, Safari, Firefox and Chrome, respectively, from top to bottom.


From Wikipedia: "Acid3 test is a web test page from the Web Standards Project that checks the performance of a web browser regarding the issue of following certain selected elements from web standards, especially relating to the Document Object Model (DOM) and JavaScript."


Safari and Chrome both appear perfect but in running the test, Chrome seemed to be just a bit smoother, so it is the winner.


My browser of choice — both before and after I put my contenders through this competition — was and remains Camino, by far the worst performer of the four.

Why is that, joe?

Because for this TechnoDolt™ it's the easiest to use and the most attractive on screen.

For me, the usable function + form combination trumps the objective superiority of the other three.

I just downloaded the latest Opera to test it: scored 100 but noticeably jerkier than Safari and Chrome.

I got 99 in Opera... was a little jerky as well, but what's the slowdown from the browser engine, and what's the slowdown from the PC?

I just ran it in Opera and it passed. If Opera ever gets a xmarks extension it will be my favorite browser.

I use Camino for specific tasks - banking, ECF, Fedex. It works better than others for those tasks.
