Mozilla’s Firefox speed test outpace Google Chrome for JavaScript

Mozilla fought back on Wednesday with some performance results to show a forthcoming version of Firefox outpacing Google Chrome web browser.

During a launch event, Google was eager to toot its horn about Chrome’s performance running JavaScript, a programming language used to power many sophisticated Web applications such as Google Docs, Yahoo’s Zimbra e-mail site, and Zoho’s online application suite. Google showed performance results using its own collection of five JavaScript benchmarks and V8, Chrome’s JavaScript engine, but Mozilla countered with a different test called SunSpider.

“We’re very much in the game and moving fast–‘reports of our death are greatly exaggerated,” JavaScript pioneer and TraceMonkey coder Brendan Eich said in a blog. And noting Firefox’s higher score, he said, “Maybe we should rename TraceMonkey ‘V10’ ;-)”

Mozilla’s Chris Blizzard directed to this post by John Resig with a broader collection of JavaScript benchmarks. It shows much more balanced results overall, but also shows TraceMonkey faring worse than the current Firefox on Google’s tests.
