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.

My point is quite simple: if they feel confident about their browser's performance gains, why don't they publish benchmarks comparing code from specific days (dev version of the respective browsers on 31/8, 7/9, 15/9, etc.)


This is precisely what Mozilla do.

Each little circle is a plot point of the performance on a particular day, for the very latest daily build of each browser's javascript engines. The benchmarks being run are Sunspider (Apple's benchmark) and v8bench (Google's benchmark).

Latest results are nine days old.

Sheesh!
