Firefox 3.1 with TraceMonkey will be faster than Chrome

    Of course, all Firefox users were very impressed with the stunning performance of the new Google Chrome browser in JavaScript processing (this speed was achieved thanks to the V8 engine). However, Mozilla developers hastened to reassure everyone: yesterday they published comparative results for the performance of V8 and the new TraceMonkey engine , which will be implemented in Firefox from version 3.1.

    Here TraceMokey overtakes the competitor by 19-28%. The SunSpider test was used in Vista operating systems on MacBook Pro and Windows XP on Mac Mini.

    In addition, the developers provide a detailed comparative table of testing on different scripts. In some places, TraceMonkey is ten times slower, but in some places it has four times superiority. On average, Firefox will still be faster.
