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.

Try this one: http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Performance/01FlyingImages/Defaul...
Firefox 4 gets max fps: 60
Opera 10.62 gets about 10fps on my system.

If Opera 10.62 has direct2d support they are doing it wrong.


On my Windows 7 box:
Opera 10.62 - 60 fps
Firefox 3.6.9 - 40 fps
IE8 - 6 fps

I don't have Chrome installed so I can't compare that. But Opera's acceleration is in fact working.

I hate that stupid benchmark because the FPS changes depending on how fast the images are spinning.

On Chrome here, I can get 60fps by just moving my mouse cursor to the middle of the screen so the images stop, or move very slowly, while I can also change it to get 35fps by moving my mouse to the side.

Stupid benchmark for comparing browsers unless it always spins the same speed every time.
