Firefox 3 Performance Gets a Boost, Opera Still Champ

Thanks Azmodan for this submission in Back Page News, from CyberNet on its cross browser tests... I've compiled the results of the SunSpider javascript Benchmark test for each of the different browsers. All of the tests below were performed on the same Windows machine, and the Firefox 3 nightly builds definitely came out on top. Here are the results sorted from best to worst (each one is hyperlinked to the full stats):

  1. Firefox 3 Nightly (PGO Optimized): 7263.8ms
  2. Firefox 3 Nightly (02/25/2008 build): 8219.4ms
  3. Opera 9.5.9807 Beta: 10824.0ms
  4. Firefox 3 Beta 3: 16080.6ms
  5. Safari 3.0.4 Beta: 18012.6ms
  6. Firefox 2.0.0.12: 29376.4ms
  7. Internet Explorer 7: 72375.0ms

Very interesting, however I haven't compiled the latest nightly build to check it's performance. My results elaborate that Opera champs over Firefox 3 Beta 3. What about you guys? Also, tell us what you're using by voting for your browser!
