    Penguin mark test for browsers from MS

    http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Pe...k/Default.html

    Funny how they use penquins which are Linux mascot.

    Not sure if it is testing properly, but I get a 0 running chrome version 33 on ubuntu with core2duo 3.5ghz 64 bit.
    The scores they show are much higher.
    Found this out by reading here

    Using Firefox-Nightly aka Firefox-trunk 31 got a 0.

    Wondering if it is designed to give IE11 a perfect 10
    bhatta

    May the Source be with you !

    My Firefox 28 just got 117, so how much does all this depend on the hardware underneath the browser?

    I'm on a fairly fast i5-3570K with 8GB ram and I wonder if that, or a genuine 20Mb/s web connection makes a difference to the score.

    On Chrome 33 I was getting between 118 and 123. I noticed that all 4 cores went to 30%. They normally run at 1 or 2%. The network showed less than 300 B/s inbound and less than 100 B/s outbound.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    Yeah, watching the little guy in the blue beany/scarf with "that E" on it ... .

    Mozilla firefox 31 (Nightly), 1st go got a 6 at full desktop sized window, 2nd go in a much smaller window, 10. Third go in a tiny window 17; this is on quite old desktop hardware and a slow net connection.

    Cheers.

    Ran Firefox 28 and got a 60. I closed Firefox, opened Chrome, and ran it from Chrome 33 and got 131 this time. Network traffic is low so I doubt my 50 mbps network has anything to do with it. I noticed that Firefox didn't balance across the cores as well as Chrome for some reason.
