Internet & Networking Now this is a subject sure to cause some discussion among all of you. LifeHacker's Adam Pash is arguing that Chrome has overtaken Firefox as the browser of choice for what he calls 'power users'; polls among LifeHacker's readership indeed seem to confirm just that. He also gives a number of reasons as to why this is the case.

I don't know which benchmark page you are referring to. I googled kraken benchmark, found this on

As I expected, even Chrome seems to beat FF 4 in speed.

That testing was for Firefox 4 Beta 6.

Firefox 4 Beta 6 doesn't include Jaegermonkey, it includes only Tracemonkey.

The gold plotline is "moz TM" ... Tracemonkey. This is what you will get in Firefox 4 Beta 6.

The black plotline is Jaegermonkey alone. The purple plotline is Jaegermonkey + Tracemonkey. The latter is what will go in Firefox 4.0 final release.

On Sunspider, Jaegermonkey + Tracemonkey = 430, Tracemonkey alone = 538.

This is a 25% improvement over Firefox 4 Beta 6.

On v8bench, Jaegermonkey + Tracemonkey = 2684, Tracemonkey alone = 5080.

This is a 90% improvement over Firefox 4 Beta 6.
