colinpj tweeted me “Can you post kraken results using the same browser versions + setup?” Here you go:

So I ran kraken on my Galaxy-S yesterday and got 770296.8ms overall with Fennec. The test never even started with the default browser.

Go for the trifecta. V8 benchmark update chart next.

If Kraken was made by the IE team, they’d be bragging about their results (assuming that they would have a better score). Mozilla is a very modest organisation, especially considering that you’re winning in the benchmark leaderboard so far.

Great job at winning it, by the way!

Impressive what Firefox Tracemonkey has done for performance compared to the others.

Is there a way to download opera 11 alpha ? I would very much like to try it. Congrats on FF scoring so good, I for once am an opera fan, but I use FF too.

We’re working on a few ideas that might dramatically help our V8 benchmark scores, so I’ll wait until that’s over to post those. I doubt we can quite catch Chrome on that for now, though–the V8 suite plays pretty strongly to their strengths.

@Ludovic Interesting. AFAIK, the Galaxy S runs Android 2.1, which I’m told doesn’t support JITs. So that test is probably comparing some weird non-JIT version of V8 against Fennec’s interpreter.

@Pamporovo : http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/2010/11/02/snapshot …careful with the add-ons, especially js blockers, they crash the browser very often. Also, uninstalling this version generates a BSOD if you have Avast5 installed. So for those having Avast5, if you need to uninstall Opera11alpha, do it in safe mode.
Also, some weird DEP (data execution prevention) alerts related to “unknown” plugins occur too.

@dmandelin: the JIT added in Android 2.2 was for the Java/Dalvik code, rather than for Javascript. I think V8 was JIT’d from day one.

I think android used to run it’s own javascript browser (webkit’s squirrelfish perhaps?) before switching to V8, but I think that was a while ago. A quick google suggests V8 was added to version 2.0

So a Android 2.1 comparison is just to a 6 or so month old V8.

Something about seeing IE9 with worst performance on this makes me laugh. Why does microsoft continue to make terrible browsers?

@Dave: Hmm, that could be. I was going off some half-remembered information, and I can’t seem to find any links that really fill in the blanks. It’s still kind of surprising to me that a 6-month-old V8 couldn’t finish the test.

That’s a very interesting approach. It sheds some new light on the topic. Got to visit this blog more often

IE 9 which should have been one of the most advanced ones there is dead last. Microsoft should just top making browsers they don’t make money on them anyway.

I guess that’s good news, although in real world browsing conditions, that won’t change much: tested latest Minefield 4b8pre versus Chrome dev 9.0.587 and Minefield takes the lead very clearly on my system: 433ms for Chrome vs 396ms for Minefield. (Chrome’s been faster than that in previous builds)
