Firefox Speed Test

with 13 comments

I use FF for all browsing except one use case…

SilverWav:

I have a large html file (9MB, 20k records in a table).
FF takes 30sec to open it, Chromium takes 5secs.
The filter on it uses js and is very fast in Chromium (10sec) but in FF > 5min :(

robcee:

I’d be interested to see your database file if it’s something you can share.
Sounds like it might make a good JS benchmark.
Hopefully we’ll fix that single use case for you. ;)

Summary

OK happily there has been a large speed up in 3.7.a4 as regards to the filtering.

The filter operation in 3.7.a4 takes 6 times less than it did in 3.6. :-)

It does not look as if the reload time has seen any improvement.

The improvements in 3.7.a4 are very encouraging but it makes you wonder what Google is doing to get such incredible sub 10sec times.

Luckily as it is open source someone can go have a look :-)
