Browser battle: Google Chrome vs Opera, Firefox and IE tests

Sep 03, 2008
The ongoing internet browser war welcomes its new contestant: famous internet giant Google just released beta version of its upcoming internet browser, which is called Chrome. In the year 2006, person from Google said that they have no plans for releasing their own browser. Recent events show that this was not true. As said in 33-paged presentation, made like a comic book, Google Chrome is very different from any popular browser. It use WebKit engine (same as Safari's), and it was written from scratch to work flawlessly with complex content like JavaScript and modern web applications.

Features that make Chrome distinguish itself from monsters like Mozilla Firefox or Opera are simple but truly amazing. First, every tab is an independed process. This makes memory management a lot easier, eliminates the reasons for memory leakage. Each tab is on its own - if one tab crashes there will be no impact on other tabs. This is very useful feature, because if you are working with many tabs at once, you may lose important information if entire browser goes down. Second, it has revolutionary JavaScript engine, which is made to work even faster than in the fastest browsers. Multithreaded page loading is another key to success, because it is very disturbing to wait with a blank screen for some JavaScripts to load: now all elements are loaded simultaneously, not one after another. In the built-in task manager you can see what tab eats more memory or CPU time than others, and effectively manage your tabs to reduce unneeded memory or CPU usage.

However, let's make an experiment and see, if this new browser from Google is faster than its famous competitors - Opera, Firefox and IE. We installed all of these browsers, and made them through some simple tests to see, which one will be faster. All browsers are freshly installed, without plugins or other add-ons which can influence on their work. The configuration of our test machine is: AMD Athlon x2 64, 2GB RAM, Windows Vista x86.

Launch time

Launch time is not very important parameter, but it influences the overall pleasure of usage. We were very impressed by Chrome launch time, it easily overdone almost every browser except IE, which launch time was almost completely the same. Let's see whole result table:




IE1 sec
Firefox2 sec
Opera 3 sec
Chrome1 sec


JavaScript speed

There already exist some JavaScript browser speed tests, so we tried this one to see, what speed will have new JavaScript engine from Google. The results were interesting and amazing: while Opera handled this test in about 600 milliseconds, Chrome did it in 350! According to the sheet published on that page, Opera results was fastest that any other browser, and Chrome overdone them easily. However, we believe that there are no ultimate tests, and each and every test may have its own winners. We tried to make our own JS test, to be sure that this test is not optimized for special browser. The task was a simple JavaScript below:

var t = new Date().getTime();
for(i = 0; i<10000000; i++){};
var t1 = new Date();.getTime();
document.write(Time for executing: +(t1-t)/1000 + sec.);

We launched it from our local server to eliminate the risk of internet connection influencing the results. So, the testing time begins.

Results for 1 page:

Unfortunately, Internet Explorer was out of the competition, because it didn't want to handle our simple script, asking every time to disable page scenarios. Firefox, Chrome and Opera handled it correctly, but in different time. So, the results are:



Firefox3.6 sec
Opera 5.7 sec
Chrome0.3 sec(!)

It is amazing how fast Chrome is compared to leading browsers! But let's try to make this task more complex and open 5 instances of this test page to see, how browsers will handle multithreading.

Results for 5 simultaneously started pages:




Firefox18 sec (when JS was executed in one tab, all interface buttons were blocked, so we opened pages one after another)
Opera 27 sec
Chrome0.3 sec(!!!)


Almost unbelievable results, which show that Chrome's JavaScript engine is truly advanced and powerful. It made through this simple test many times faster than its competitors, Firefox and Opera. However, tests will never show a real situation, so we wanted to make a simple usage test and see, how efficient will be Chrome's memory management. We opened 5 tabs simultaneously, five heavy loaded pages in each browser. All browsers was tested on one set of pages, so they are all in one conditions.

Memory usage on 5 tabs right from the start:





IE60 MB
Firefox64.4 MB
Opera 52.2 MB
Chrome75.4 MB


At the first glance, Chrome is eating more memory that its rivals, but let's look on this results after 10 minutes of intensive usage:

Memory usage on 5 tabs after 10 min of intensive surfing:





IE96 MB
Firefox109.8 MB
Opera 96.6 MB
Chrome84.1 MB


Results are not such amazing as speed, but they show that Chrome's multithreaded tab handling, while eating more from the start, wins after some intensive usage.

All these test clearly show us, that new browser from Google is truly revolutionary and very interesting. It is now only on Beta stage, so the result may even improve after time. Of course, it lacks some advanced features that Opera or Firefox have, but let's hope that all of them will be implemented in the final release. Google made a wise choice for keeping its browser open-source, so all the improvements done in the Chrome can be used by other developers in their browsers. It is early to tell, will it have bigger popularity that nowadays leaders, but it is clear that this browser will not pass out unnoticed. Developers say that final version will be released for all operating systems, including Linux and MacOS, and even on the final stage it will remain fully open-source.

Opera comes up with a new idea, and others copy!! And chrome cant even do that...
People compare only the speed of the browser, but people never consider ease of use..Considering ease of use, by the time you type the letters of a webpage in chrome, opera can load it...Firefox is just ok..IE is default..
Chrome sucks..right from how it installs!!!

I tried Firefox and IE and found out that IE actually runs a bit faster. It's weird cuz most of you support Firefox but IE is faster. Google chrome is fast when you use it for the first few weeks. After it's like a snail. I didn't try Opera yet which I want to download later on but right now for the 3 browsers I do NOT recommend Firefox.

Chrome is for people who want quality fast.

Now I have realized that I had done a mistake! I downloaded all the browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera to test which one is the fastest. But now I got to know that Chrome is the winner! I thought that I should try Opera and when I did, I thought that Opera is better as it had a turbo feature which boosted the internet, but shed off the image quality. Now I know that Chrome can do it without any reduction in image quality! Google Chrome is the best!

Opera eats RAM like crazy, enough to BSOD my computer a couple times.

There really isnt too much of a difference to really argue which is faster because 10% faster on a 300 ms load isnt super fast... But I do like using Chrome a little more then opera at least for looks.

OPERA SLOW! GOOGLE CHROME FAST!
» posted by: joseph / Jul 16, 2010 03:34 PM
actually, opera eats up a lot of RAM and cache, but it is much faster than chrome in loading a webpage (27% faster) and some XHTML written softwares can't be compatible with the WebKit (wetpaint editors and FreeWebs editors)
the following are sth the google chrome claims to have

It is more stable: because it is more simple...i got 100 percent confidence i could make a browser as stable within 5 minutes with game maker

It is fast: opera is faster

It offers security, sandboxing and safe browsing: as if opera isnt

Google chromes task manager: you got seperate tabs right, opera uses something similar

Google Chrome has a privacy mode: opera too

Instant bookmark option: it isn't important as opera automatically remembers your websites

Web Application shortcuts: any other browsers could do it too

I actually think that opera is the best but i use chrome because the test results say it has the fastest javascript.

I really want to use opera because of it's many features like bittorent protocol, media player in browser and IM for opera.Opera also loads way faster in my computer and only consuming some 20mb of your HDD.

Chrome is lightning fast for me for a few seconds...then I find it hanging on certain web pages. Generally Firefox isn't much slower and Adblock Plus seems to help.

Opera uses little memory and its pre-loading feature makes for a very responsive interface. I tend to use Opera for general browsing, because it goes the longest without slow down. More people really should give Opera a try, Chrome for me won't be good until it stops slowing down after visiting several websites.
» posted by: Staccato / Feb 13, 2010 11:35 AM
it's true that chrome is fast, but it lacks a lot of features. if i want do get online quickly and get off quickly, I use chrome.

opera is the whole package; it keeps adding on features without clogging itself too much. It's sleek, very user-friendly, and while a bit slower than chrome, the loading time is not so slow that I get annoyed by it.

safari (I have a mac) on a mac is bliss, but when it crashes, it takes everything with it, and I am left with nothing. At least on Opera, they give you the choice to restore your previous settings.

i installed firefox but took it off of my system; too many add-ons distract me (the constant updates are annoying too), it wasn't as fast as I wanted it to be (that I ended up using safari or opera more often than not), and it slowed my computer down, significantly.

I use safari the most simply because it really does work well on the Mac, but Opera is a clsoe second. :)

Firefox is good and so is opera however Google chrome is amazing and so so reliable.
The add ons are good and the themes wipe the floor with every other browser. As for IE8, i would rather create my own browser then use that.

I use Opera and Chrome a lot. I currently like Opera because it is easier to use. Firefox is also good but it takes to much monitor space. IE is truely horrible. Opera seems to be faster in some websites but Google Chrome is faster in others. However, Opera still beat the race for serious browsing, unlike Google Chrome, which is so simple that it couldn't do anything. I currently use both of them.

Opera is my preferred choice. I have a slow PC which I am planning to upgrade this Christmas, but I don't think this will effect my choice. Opera is not popular, but it is sleek, user friendly and a nice change from IE and (I think, but it feels) lighter than Firefox. Firefox has an army of add-ons, which is a bit messy, and Safari performs horribly and is out of place on PCs. I have tried Chrome and though it is light and fast, I don't like the layout. No, I think the browser which wins the main consumer market (PC/Mac owners) will win the competition.

Worst form priocessing. Worst processing of long Pages - falled after trying a load a 100Mbytes length WEB-page. Opera and Firefox processed this page, but for a long time. I closed acces to my site from this browser.

I am not impressed with any browser. They are all slow and clunky.

Also, something should be done to stop Shockwave adverts. That might improve CPU usage and bandwith.

I think that web pages have become very complex. And web developers need to do to slim pages down.

Opera is the best among all because only opera provides best internet experience for pc, laptop as well as for the mobile phones.
therefore now many top mobile compnies are giving opera applications for best internet experience.
On the same hand mozilla is also very fast.
but the facilies which are provided by opera are best and un beatable.
like tabulation of web pages.
speed scrolling etc.

I consider, the Opera - the best browser.
It so because I use it 10 years, for which requirements to a browser that decreased, increased. Certainly I used also all other browsers, but, they have not sustained criticism, as though it was pleasant to me Linux's Firefox, or distributing my data IE.
By sbg, Opera it is better Chrome at least only to that I never would began to cross out 10 years experience of a gain me Opera.

Chrome: Very fast, light, clean.
Firefox: Uber customization, efficient, widely supported.
Opera: Fast, light, customizable.
IE: Simple.

Chrome: Not that customizable, not widely supported as Firefox or IE.
Firefox: Slower than Opera + Chrome on most sites.
Opera: Not much personalization (other than themes and Speed Dial). Not as widely supported as Firefox or IE.
IE: Slow, crashes, clunky UI, not customizable, not even special :'(

So I'd recommend something like Firefox or Opera as main, and Google Chrome as secondary, because Opera and Firefox support more things than Chrome. All those browsers I compared are the up-to-date versions, and they are ALL better than any IE Microsoft will ever release.

"Opera also scores 100 for acid3 test, beat that"
Easy. Only alpha 10 of opera can do that. Chrome 2.0 (it`s status is undefined: beta or stable, but in any case it is already redy to work. I can`t say this about opera 10) can do that now too.
"it always saves tabs when you crash" Firefox does it always too. Maybe, you use old version?
"there is so many superior features in opera vs others out of the box" Most of them are useless/uncomfortable/unconfigurable/noneffective. Just remember adblocker in opera and compare it with adblock plus.
"Opera finally also fixed most of the problems whit gmail and facebook i can see... but still, many websites uses bugs as "features" so n00b will think "what a bad browser, can not handle this and this""
Why firefox doesn`t have troubles with this sites? Maybe because opera tries to combine too much things in one browser and they can`t make them all ok?
"Opera had already implemented anti-phishing measures."
Anti-phishing protection in opera is not the same as anti-malware/anti-phishing protection implemented in both Chrome and Firefox. Anti-phishing protection in Opera can`t protect you from sites which tries to penetrate your pc`s protection and download malware. But firefox and Chrome can.

Its nice to see google browser, but i am still Opera & firefox user. ONLY reason i use firefox is Ad Block Plus & Element hidder addon - i can cleanup and remove parts of ad bloaded websites whit this tool. And for seccond there is some good addons that let me download mp4 videos from youtube whit one click and avi's from google video etc - i these are good addons. Also i use firefox when i need to copy formatted text to other window (and opera is good if you do not want formatting)

Opera 10 is way faster in most tests and unlike firefox it always saves tabs when you crash - and there is so many superior features in opera vs others out of the box that i even do not have time to list them here - some of them i have discovered after years of using.

Opera finally also fixed most of the problems whit gmail and facebook i can see... but still, many websites uses bugs as "features" so n00b will think "what a bad browser, can not handle this and this" .
Opera also scores 100 for acid3 test, beat that :)


No need to talk about IE here...

Anyway, lets hope google keeps up the good work!

Opera had already implemented anti-phishing measures. Maybe your had configured Opera to stop checking for phishing and malicious sites. In Opera, it is "Fraud Protection". You will need to select the "Enable Fraud Protection" tab in the Security tab under Preferences menu. Opera is good. You just need to savy enough to take advantage of them.

I've used them all (the ones currently in beta). For me, the load time is in order: Chrome, Opera, IE, Firefox. Browsing web pages: Chrome, Opera, Firefox, IE. Website compatibility: IE, Firefox/Chrome, Opera (Firefox and Chrome are equal, while Opera is not even close to the others). Customization: Firefox/Opera, IE, Chrome.

Chrome's load time is instant while Firefox takes at least several seconds. Firefox wins in a landslide for extensions. Of course, they will also add considerably to the load time. Is it worth it? You decide for yourself. Usually people's computers are so messed up they're use to programs loading very slowly... so they wont notice any difference. I on the other hand, notice every second.

Chrome has only been out for several months, and its still in beta, so extensions are still a little while off. Bookmarking is a little odd as well, but you get use to it. I actually find it a bit easier/quicker to use than others. Chrome is now my browser of choice.
» posted by: iravi / Nov 13, 2008 12:40 AM
Today i tried all the browsers, uninstalling all and trying only one at a time, so that it wont effect the operation.
According to me interms of speed, ease and fast loading i'll rank them as:
1st - opera 9.6
2nd - firefox 3.0.3
3rd - internet explorer 7 ( dont use beta 8 its a damn pain!!)
4rth- google chrome ( i think the defect is loading time, very slow compared to others and very bad way to handle book-marks.)



however till date internet explorer loads every page standing out as official whereas Firefox and Chrome won't. i have just started using Opera today so don't know how it loads pages from different SITES.

one thing i have to remark here that, OPERA have really cool features from CUSTOMIZATION and every thing else, i am actually loving it. If u have never tried OPERA do try it once, its really cool. though i too have too watch out a lot about it :-), its real fun using it, i never expected it to be lthis good.

i really hope chrome improves its weight in terms of memory it uses both CPU (especially) and RAM (may b coz its also using beta..).

my suggestion always keep IE and use OPERA or FIREFOX until some improvization is done in CHROME.


- hoe its useful, just a personal review. :-)

First of all, Google Chrome Beta (yes, it's still in beta) which was released not long ago should not be compared with any browser because it has been released for a short while and this is there first browser and it's just a Beta (not the completed version) unlike Firefox, and yet it still manages to challenge Firefox. Wait until Google releases 1-3 more updates/upgrades/newer versions to Google chrome and then try it again and most of you would like it (or since i'm now posting this, try the latest version of Google Chrome) but if you want add-ons/extensions that don't slow down your browser or cause other issues like with Firefox, give Google 5 months - 1 year. Also, Google Chrome, believe it or not, is much faster, has a cleaner interface, uses less memory, crashes less than Firefox (with me) and is more secure and Google releases 10-30 nightly builds of Google Chrome everyday and also has a Developers/Testers channel which has newer versions of Google Chrome every 1-2 weeks (with a change log and new features etc) which are tested before they are publicly released. Google has changed the EULA for Google Chrome over a month ago.

Chrome is awesome but the matter of regret is that it should integrated some addon tools like it does not support online radio podcast most of the cases and some video file format. I am waiting for its full featured version!!!

Chrome Rocks! it's speed is amazing; but it has a weak point; DO NOT USE CHROME if u have a single-core processor and/or 512 MB RAM.

I've tested Chrome in many scenarios, and it's really resource demnding. i'd like to test it on my AMD Phenom 9750; but i have no Internet at home :(

I Love Apple's Safari, it has almost the same internal motor, it's single thread (one benifit from this, is that it it hangs, U may close the process very easily, as the other cores R free) and it has the good looking appear from Apple's products

I dont agree to that.... Chrome is a lot more faster... and it will be one of the top most browsers in no time. Features will follow.. Way to go Google...

Also Chrome does not have a separate proxy server settings and makes use of IE's only....

Normally I disable IE's internet access by giving a dummy proxy server just to prevent many trojans, spyware and stuff..... And do the browsing in Opera....

But the same is not possible with Chrome..... Why the hell should a browser share the same proxy settings as another browser ? An import settings option is good but sharing option sucks.....

I downloaded Chrome and it wouldn't work in an environment where proxy servers are used - with the same parameters IE and Opera work fine. The interface is too stripped-down. I'll stick with Opera.

I see a lot of bias in here towards chrome.... It is good to show enthu for revolutionary products from Google and Apple.... But just like the new iPhone lacks some of the basic features, Chrome is nothing but trash compared to Opera.....

Well, I disagree with the fact that it has no useful features, if you spent the time to actually look up shortcuts and use the browser it was meant to be used, instead of just jerking it to the porn, you would have noticed these features:

1. Task Manager for Websites
2. Visual Browser History
3. Super Clean Contextual Menus
4. Search Your Favorite Websites from the Address Bar
5. See Memory Used by Different Browsers
6. Reopen Website tabs that you closed by mistake
7. To fight malware and phishing attempts, Chrome is constantly downloading lists of harmful sites. (Which I don't see Opera doing)

Ya. Eat it.

are you serious with theese test results?

I haven't been able to download chrome yet. once it gets to the "import" part of downloading, it stops, and won't let me pull it up.
Even when it does download properly, I'm not so sure it'll beat my standards with Firefox. Or at least from what I've heard.

That looks like a Poke Ball.

None of these tests impress me.

My concern is with the user interface and can I make the browser work as I want it to work, or do I have to work as the browser makes you work.

The few seconds one might save over the other pale in comparison with the time I spend manipulating the browser to see what I want to see.

I bet chome in final releases will be a lot slower, and now it is only bare bones - no useful features at all, not user friendly at all. I am staying with Opera

I don't see any battle between those browsers. You don't want to switch to chrome if you got used to opera's left-right clicking and vice-versa for going Back and Forward only, but I can live without it. Overall chrome is so much faster... recomand.
