In the News NetApplications has released its latest browser market share figures, and these figures show that Chrome has overtaken Safari as the number three browser worldwide, behind Internet Explorer and Firefox. IE, by the way, continues to lose popularity rather fast.

Script performance in chrome

I think one of the most advertised strong point in Chrome is the script engine supposedly delivering far better performance than any other browser.

This may be the case in the pages written specifically for Chrome but it is really not true on the everyday pages you can find on the Internet.

On the contrary, Chrome may prove to be the slowest. I had noticed that when developing my site that uses the Image Flow js component from Finn Rudolph. Have a look at http://faltiska.net/en. Use your mouse scroll on the visual navigator.

Do that in Firefox, Opera, IE and Chrome. Chrome is really bad. IE is annoying because of the tearing but the movement is more fluent. Firefox and Opera are near perfect.

So, what is Google bragging about?
