Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

Since my SSDs failed (and I really can't be bothered to replace them at the moment), everytime I start Firefox I find it takes longer than Chrome ....

However on my home machine I am running nightly of Firefox and Chrome Canary.

The thing that I am really excited by which nobody mentions is WebRTC support which IMHO is bloody awesome after playing around with it.

On Linux and normal HDDs I've found that Chrome (Canary and latest stable) take FOREVER to load.. well over 10 seconds. And that's with pretty much a new user profile!

Firefox hasn't had that problem since around version 3 or so, and it loads up in under 5 seconds depending on the number of tabs and extensions I have open.

So really, this is very much anecdotal and dependent on many factors. To the point where it might even be a useless statistic for all but the most basic users.

Dependant on many factors. At work we all have the same model of machine with the same OS, same AV ... you get the picture.

Firefox is always far slower than Chrome.
