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.

Yes, Mozilla seems to be equally dishonest with Kraken. That still doesn't mean that the V8 benchmark is any better.

Peacekeeper is the only independent benchmark. Claims about Kraken from Mozilla, and the V8 bench from Google, must be taken with a grain of salt because they are clearly being dishonest about it.

Oh, come on!

Mozilla, and Mozilla alone, are measuring their performance against the benchmarks put out by the other browsers.

What's this site?

This site tracks the performance of popular JavaScript engines.

Who's behind it? Is Mozilla?

This site is maintained by Mozilla's JavaScript team.

What are the graphs?

The left-hand graph is Apple's SunSpider benchmark. The right-hand graph is Google's V8 benchmark suite.


What is there that is even the teeniest tiniest bit dishonest about that? It simply doesn't matter how unfair Google's v8bench is, and how much it favours Google's V8 engine, if Moziila developers are using it to rate Firefox's performance against Chrome.

Sheesh!
In that context, Mozilla developers using v8bench and sunspider to measure Firefox is the precise, exact opposite of unfair and dishonest.

Get real. Try some other kind of FUD, because that one utterly and completely missed the target.

The dishonesty here is making Kraken, and tying it to Firefox's JS implementation (like Google tied the V8 benchmark to V8).

So yes, both Google and Mozilla are being extremely dishonest.
