    Google has made significant progress in accelerating its web browser through the GPU. The latest versions of Chrome (Chromium) are now fully hardware accelerated and are close in performance to Firefox 4 and IE9.

    [​IMG]

    It has not taken long for Google to catch up with Mozilla and Microsoft in supporting hardware acceleration in its Chrome web browser, according to Microsoft’s tests. We took all current developer beta/versions of popular browsers out for a spin to see where they stand in terms of performance. The result may surprise: There is no clear-cut winner anymore. Just like Microsoft is now providing much better JavaScript performance than it did with IE8, Google has now capable hardware acceleration that virtually eliminated IE9’s and Firefox 4’s advantage in this discipline.

    How we test web browsers


    There is no standard way how to test the performance of web browsers and different people may prefer different methods. Additionally, results may not be representative across all platforms and they may differ considerably depending on the hardware and operating system you use.

    We re-evaluated our test platform and decided to decrease the performance capability of our “old” hardware platform. We are standardizing all our tests on this new platform for the foreseeable future. Instead of a desktop PC, we are following the trend toward mobile and are using a compact Acer Ferrari 200 netbook with an Athlon X2 L310 1.2 GHz processor and 3 GB of memory. The system has an AMD/ATI HD3200 graphics chip with shared memory and runs Windows 7 (64-bit).

    The scores on this system are substantially below what our “old” desktop system posted. Our little Ferrari should represent the very minimum performance you can expect from these browsers on a reasonable computer today.

    Our benchmarks of choice are Mozilla’s comprehensive new Kraken JavaScript benchmark, the Sunspider benchmark as well as Microsoft’s Psychedelic Wheel benchmark, which we run in full resolution at 1366×768 pixels.

    Chrome’s Big Jump


    There are still some issues getting IE9 Beta to run on our Vista SP2 system and, in fact, the browser refuses to install until today, despite the fact that there are Microsoft’s well-hidden requirements for IE9 Beta. The purpose of this article was simply to find out whether Firefox is really as fast as Mozilla claims in its Kraken benchmark – about 7.23x faster than IE9. But, it turns out, the news was something entirely different.

    Psychedelic Wheel Test


    IE9 Beta was by far the fastest browser in this popular GPU acceleration test. It showed 1287 revolutions, which was ahead of the 980 revolutions of Firefox 4.0 b7-pre. Chromium, which we call Chrome for simplicity reasons in this article, came in at 4 revolutions for the version 7.0.529.0. The GPU switches Google has mentioned so far in its blog posts did not change this number, but we also tried our complete set of switches, which accelerated the browser to 910 revolutions. Version 524.0, in comparison, runs this test at just 237 revolutions on our system. Google has made considerable progress and is now very competitive with its rivals. To achieve the GPU result, you will need to launch Chrome with these extensions: chrome.exe -enable-accelerated-compositing -enable-gpu-rendering -enable-accelerated-2d-canvas. Please note that only the nightly builds and canary builds of Chrome support these extensions.

    Google said last week that it would take a month or two until the user will see some acceleration benefits and it seems that Google is on track to implement those improvements in a final version that should be out as final before the end of the month or early October. What is somewhat interesting is that Google is likely to provide full hardware acceleration in a final version of its browser before Microsoft will provide it in the final version of IE9 and Mozilla in the final version of Firefox 4, thanks to the 6-week release cycles of Chrome.

    Opera 10.7 Beta does not offer any hardware acceleration at this point and scored 3 revolutions.

    Kraken

    Mozilla says that this JavaScript test is much more comprehensive than the Sunspider test and takes real world applications into account. There are those who claim that this test heavily favors Firefox, but Mozilla denies this allegation and recently stated that Firefox 4 JS (the version with the new JavaScript Engine “Jaegermonkey”) is 7.23x faster in this benchmark than IE9 Beta. In our test run, Firefox 4 b7-pre came in at a time of 33,768.6 ms, while IE9 took 217,130.9 ms, which made Firefox 4 more than six times faster than IE9 Beta – and made Firefox 4 the fastest browser in this test. Opera 10.7 Beta with 43,889.2 ms, followed by Chrome 7 with 48,122.3 ms.

    Sunspider

    We have to get used to the new scores of our little Ferrari notebook, as they are much slower in Sunspider than they were on our quad-core desktop PC. However, those slower scores are, subjectively, not noticeable, even if they are up to four times slower on the netbook. The advances that have been made in this field, particularly in this benchmark are simply stunning and further improvements may be more cosmetics and not represent real world value.

    Sunspider says that Firefox 4 b7-pre is the slowest browser in this shootout with a time of 1268.3 ms. IE9 Beta is slightly ahead with 1191.0 ms. Opera 10.7 Beta clearly beats these two browser with a time of 858.6 ms. Chrome 7.0.529.0 wins this test with 830.2 ms. Opera and Chrome are within the margin of error. Despite the relatively wide range between Firefox and Chrome, it is difficult to identify any differences in performance between the slowest and the fastest browser of the Sunspider pack.

    Which is the fastest browser?


    If you want to be picky, you would choose Chrome 7 as the fastest browser right now, given the fact that there are few web pages that require hardware acceleration today. If you want to use the fastest GPU browser out there, you would pick IE9. However, the reality is that JavaScript speed is at a very high level in all browsers. If speed matters to you, then I would rather recommend looking at the startup time of the browser. In most cases I suspect it will be the platform support and general appeal of the browser as well very specific features that will decide which browser you will pick. If you are looking for the best Windows 7 integration, IE9 is the best choice. IEW9 does not support Windows XP and about 60% of all computers in the world today and I would even go as far and say that you should not use it unless you run Windows 7. If you need the best search engine integration, your choice will be Chrome. If you prefer the best tabbed browsing experience, you will pick Firefox. Both Chrome and Firefox also offer the best cloud (data sync) feature integration. If you are an Apple fan, it will be Safari. And if you don’t like any of the above, there is always Opera.

    In any case, all those browsers are excellent choices today.

    I said it here: http://www.jamiiforums.com/technology-and-science-forum/26290-best-browser.html, and after prolonged use of Chrome, I think it has finally turned into an all-rounder and therefore the best browser if you're not into specialized tasks. Just my personal view.

    Nilisoma U faster wa google chrome unakwenda na more bandwidth usage. Kuna independente review moja niliwai kusoma kuwa kwenye google chrome kuna features zinazofanya iwe faster zinatumia bandwidth zaidi kuliko browser nyingine . inagwa sio kiasi cha kutisha.



    But binafsi zaidi ya firefox natumia pia chrome. Inernet explorer nimeidisbale kabisa.

    Sidhani kama chrome inatumia bandwidth kubwa... nimeanza kuitumia tangu ilipokuwa launched, halafu jana tu mchana nilikuwa nasoma gazeti fulani hivi la Linux, haki ya nani tena the future of browsing might now fully be Chromium. Kwani google wameanzisha projects kibao ambazo zitaenda parallel na customisation ambayo kabla ilikuwa inaonekana iko kwenye Firefox pekee. Pia katika article hiyo kulionesha ni namna gani ambavyo unaweza kui-strip down chrome lakini ku-retain security na kuifanya iwe inakimbia kama haina akili nzuri vile!!! Itanibidi nilinunue tu lile gazeti... lol

    Kuhusu IE... mimi kama wewe nimeachana nayo kwa kweli, ila from time to time inabidi kuitumia haswa pale mahitaji ya updates za microsoft yanaponikabiri. Lakini labda itabidi kuirudia tena, maana IE9 imeanzwa kuongelewa vizuri pahala pengi.

    Kwa shughuli za web production Firefox inaongoza, hilo halipingiki.

    I will also have to test Internet Explorer 9 but lost my trust over Microsoft products.

    Chrome naona inakuja kwa kasi ya ajabu. Still my favorite is FireFox (and I can see FireFox 4 is out for testing)

    Steve unajua nilisoma hizo review nikashangaa . Nilikuwa najiuliza test ya kulinganisha bandwidth usage kwa browser mbali mbali

    Lakini kwa mujibu wa mtaalam niliyesoma review yake ?( bado najaribu kutafuta hiyo article) Alisema kwenye chrome ukiensa kwenye options kuna option by default inakuwa selected inaitwa "use DNS- prefetching to improve page laod performance"

    Anyway binafsi sijawai kuona tofauti ya bandwidhth usage. kama ipo itakuwa ndogo sana. siyo ya kufanya mtu uache kutumia.


    Sasa swali Je google wanaweza kutumia chrome browser.ku enhence Google search engine?

    Am just curious sababu nahisi hata kama hujafungua web ya google.com kufanya seach. May be imefungua jamiifrums.com kutumia browser ya chrome. So zaidi ya google serach engine chrome inaweza kuwa tool nyingine ya ku tracj user dynamics na hivyo kuwasaidia google kuboresha search engine na search result

    Nina hakika Google na product zake ni biggest threat kwa Monopoly na market share aliyokuwa nayo Microsoft.

    Browser Review 2010

    [​IMG]
    What is the fastest browser? What is the best browser? These questions are very common, but they have many uncommon answers!






    What Is A Browser?

    If your one of the many people who still do not know what a browser exactly is, a browser is a program that enables you to view the Web on the Internet. If you need to view a web page like the one you're at now then you are using a browser (which is not to be confused with the "search engine" you’re using with your browser such as Yahoo, Ask Jeeves, Bing or Google's search engine. These companies also have many other services and products as well as browsers. You can use any search engine you like with any browser... You may not even know which browser you're using! It will probably be "Internet Explorer , " which is that little blue "e" icon on your desk top and/or in the quick launch bar. This particular browser is the most common browser used because many people think there are no other s ! But there is -- and much better ones!



    [​IMG]





    Browsers are like vehicles, you want to travel fast, securely and in style with lots of cool fetures – just like President Obama in the illustration below.

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]
    Google Chrome



    • Chrome Information, tips, tools and tricks, click Here

    • Have fun, meet people, and find love here



    Test drive each browser and observe it's performance, features and styles and compare them to others.

    No matter how good your browser is there are other that will have some better features. features are updated so frequently that my advice is to take each one for a spin to see how it handles and compare it with the others.




    Whats good for the Goose may not be good for the gander!


    Let’s say John and Jane test drive every available browser. John may decide that Firefox is the best browser while Jane is sure that Internet Explorer is the best. Who’s correct? Answer: They're both correct! The reason they're both correct is that the best browser is the one that meets your individual needs and is best for you and your PC. It's all about individual preference!




    Having a variety installed on your PC makes using the Internet easier.

    You’ll find that tools and other gimmicks are added to browsers all the time. Never un-install browser's you don't use as it's best to keep it for a rainy day when you have problems with the browsers you currently use. If you decide to switch to other browsers, I recommend that you do not un-install Internet Explorer from your PC because it is an integral part of your computer.




    How To Make a Browser Faster!

    Disable programs that are running but not needed. Use Perfect Un-installer to remove unwanted applications that you, or Windows, cannot remove. Reduce your browser plug-ins, Spy-ware and Ad-ware. Disable images within the browser settings, especially if you are only using it for script-based searches. Turn off flash, Java, images, sound etc. Close tool bars when not in use.



    Click here to restore your PC back to it's peak performance. FREE PC SCAN!!
    Clear your Internet cache files regularly, or instead of turning off individual features from your favorite browser, try selecting another browser (See full browser list bottom of page) and turn off all the features you don't use. This is great for script based searches. This will enable faster page loading, giving you more time to research. You can simply switch to your existing browser when you need to view certain things online. The browser I use depends of what I’m doing. Just changing the browser can result in better performance.



    What Is The Best Browser For a Mac: Camino, Firefox, Flock, OmniWeb and Opera all perform well on Mac Machines, but overall the best browser for Mac users is Safari. This is because of its seamless integration with iCal (Calendar) and address book. It offers the handy feature of date and address recognition so that information sent to you by email can be used to generate events directly into your calendar. The Web history is elegantly shown, using the cover flow style (such as itunes on the iphone.) This is particularly useful when you can’t remember its URL, but do remember what a Web page looks like. It’s all about user preference. Try them all to see which one you prefer. They’re all free! See links below.



    Below is a list of all the browsers currently on the market, but I will discuss only the top three here: They are: Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer.



    Quick Review - The Top 4 Most Used Browsers- Firefox Vs Internet Explorer Vs Opera..Only YOU can decide!!

    [​IMG]
    Which Browser Is Best: Firefox , Internet Explorer, Opera or another!?


    [​IMG]





    Internet Explorer 8

    [​IMG]
    Internet Explorer Logo



    Internet Explorer.

    Internet Explorer 8 was a major improvement to IE7 and about time too!. It's losing it's popularity every day, but is still one of the most used browsers. It has a new navigation bar and a better design. It has tabbed browsing. Its addition of the zoom function at the bottom of each page is very useful. Although the “find next” tool is still weak, it has an impressive range of plug-ins. IE8 has great improvements in security and new features compared to IE 7.



    Supports: Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) - vista compatible.
    More Information & DOWNLOAD Internet Explorer 8 Beta HERE





    [​IMG]





    Opera 10.62

    [​IMG]
    Opera Logo



    Opera 10.62

    Opera is a highly respected Web browser from Norway that offers many unique features , including a great magnification tool, thousands of cool widgets, text to speech and third party extensions. You can do everything from home PC to mobile, Surf the full Web on your smart phone or PDA. It's very cool. The progress bar on the address bar lets you see pages loaded from the site. Overall, it's a very good looking browser, performs very well, and is a must have to your arsenal of browsers.



    Supports: All Windows OS including windows Vista.. Solaris Sparc.. Solaris Intel... QNX... OS/2.. MacOS.. Linux Sparc.. Linux Power PC... Linux i38..6 FreeBSD i386 ...BeOS
    More Information & DOWNLOAD Opera HERE.


    [​IMG]





    Mozilla FireFox 3.6.10

    [​IMG]
    FireFox Logo



    Firefox

    Firefox 3.6 has a tabbed interface , pop-up blocker/built-in multiple search tools and built-in RSS reader, it handles nicely and it’s always stable. The spellcheck for text boxes uses the familiar dotted colored lines under words although the others also have this feature. If you need an extension for something, the Firefox extension capabilities are powerful and easy to use. It also offers many themes. I have been using Firefox since day one and compared to the others, it is in a class by itself although Opera does come extremely close.

    Firefox, as well as all other browsers, can be downloaded, installed and run in conjunction with any existing browsers you have. Note: Firefox does not currently support ActiveX.
    Supports all Windows 98 to XP & Vista: Mac OS X and several varieties of Linux and Red Hat Linux 8.0.
    More Information & DOWNLOAD Firefox 3.5 HERE:

    Kwa Mtazamo wangu mimi the Fastest browser is safari 5
    Apple
    Safari 5: faster, less clutter, secure browser extensions


    [​IMG]
    Just after the announcement of the new iPhone 4 at WWDC, Apple announced the release of Safari 5 for Windows and Mac. Unlike Safari 4—which focused primarily on cosmetic improvements like the Top Sites page and the ill-fated top tabs—this release brings a big focus on standards compatibility, speed improvements, a new Apple-vetted extensions system, the ability to switch between Google, Yahoo, and Bing for default search, and a new feature that Apple calls Safari Reader.
    Apple’s new Nitro JavaScript Engine runs JavaScript up to 30 percent faster than Safari 4. We’ve covered the Nitro engine in the past, which was originally called the less marketable name of SquirrelFish Extreme. Nitro, or some variant of it, is currently suspected to be in use in Mobile Safari.
    Apple now uses DNS prefetching to speed up page loads; Google’s Chrome browser has incorporated this optimization for a while now. On complex sites, there can be tens to hundreds of different resources located on different web domains (like arstechnica.com, static.arstechnica.com and so on). Everytime you load a page, a request needs to be made to your DNS servers to get those site’s IP address. There is, of course, network latency inherent in every one of those requests, and they can add up.
    What Safari 5 will do now is look ahead to links you might click and begin pre-resolving those domains' IPs. When you do eventually click on one of those links, the browser will have already figured out the IP addresses it needs and can begin grabbing the data. Apple has also improved how previously visited pages are cached, claiming that return visits to those pages will see improved loading times.
    Reader and HTML5

    Apple bills Safari's new Reader feature as a way to read articles on the web in a “…new, scrollable view without any additional content or clutter.” This shows shades of a very popular online bookmarklet called Readability, developed by Arc90, as opposed to an Instapaper-like service, which uploads the content of an article to a third-party server for reading on different devices at a later date. Safari 5 contains heuristics that will detect if a webpage contains an article and it will present a "Reader button" in the Smart Address field. Clicking that button will remove all webpage content, ads and all, and leave only the meat of the article. From that point there will be options to enlarge the text, print the article, or email the contents.
    Another interesting tidbit is that Safari Reader will stitch together multipage articles in this same manner, much to some sites' chagrin. What's cool about Apple's implementation is that once a user clicks the "Reader" button, Safari begins downloading every page of an article in the background and begins stitching them together. It does a full, real, request on every single page. The publication sees all the pageviews on every page and even ad frames get downloaded for each pageview, which could quell some publisher worries.
    [​IMG]
    Safari 5's Reader feature use on a multi-page Ars article.


    Another huge part of Safari 5 is the mainstream availably of a large number of HTML5 features. Previously, many of these features have been available on nightly builds of Webkit—which are essentially Safari 4 wrapped around cutting-edge builds of Apple’s web rendering engine. With the release of Safari 5, Apple is rolling out support for full-screen video and closed-captioning on HTML5 video, Geolocation, sectioning elements, draggable attribute, forms validation, Ruby, AJAX History, EventSource, and WebSockets. I should just pause here and tell you that as a web developer, this previous paragraph made me giddy with delight. A number of these APIs and abilities are available here and there in Chrome and Firefox and they’ve been sorely missing from Safari.
    Secure extensions

    [​IMG]

    Probably one of the least expected—but coolest—parts of Safari 5 is the announcement that the application will support secure and signed extensions that run in the browser. Without seeing any of the documentation for the developer program (which we will detail when we get our hands on it), we can’t speculate too much on how deeply one might hook into Safari.
    What we do know is that Apple has created a new “Safari Developer Program,” in which individual developers can enroll for free. Developers can then write extensions that are completely sandboxed from the main browser process (and presumably from other extensions) for security and stability reasons. Apple is following the lead of Firefox’s JetPack project and Chrome’s extension system by letting developers write their browser extensions in HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript as opposed to something more complex like Objective-C. In a break with the competition, though, it seems that Apple is requiring that all Safari Extensions go through the Apple Developer Program. The extensions will be cryptographically signed by Apple, and the browser will check to make sure that the extensions are signed properly before they can be used.
    [​IMG]
    Creating a new Safari Extension.


    Within Safari 5 is a tool called Extension Builder, which is apparently where developers will be able to perform the actual development of the extensions, as well as package and install them. It’s not yet clear how the distribution of these applications will take place. The existence of the Safari Developer Program and the requirement that all extensions must be signed by Apple before they go into the wild might indicate that Apple will exercise tight control over the market for these extensions and not allow them to be side-loaded into Safari (much like iPhone apps).
    Update: After playing with Safari 5's extension builder, it does indeed look like you can just download extensions from the web or a developers website and load them into Safari.
    At the Safari state of the union talk at WWDC, Panic's Cabel Sasser demoed what we believe is the first Safari Extension—a website annotation tool. Cabel details how they made the extension and their thoughts on the process on their blog.
    Finally, we did notice that by default, extension support is disabled in Safari 5.

    Naipenda Google chrome lakini Safari 5 kiboko yao na iko safe.

    MziziMkavu, I think if you tried to edit just a little bit your articles it would really be great for all of us, instead of pasting them on as they appear elsewhere on the wide wild web!

    Please try to optimize articles for JF readability. Thanks!

    Mtazamaji, nielewavyo prefetching ni technique iliyo kama standard katika browsers zote. Ilikuwepo tangu enzi za Netscape ( hapa lazima ukumbuke ulimwengu wa AOL mid nineties lol!!). Ila ni kiwango cha prefetching kinachofanyika ndiyo hutofautiana. Nasema ni standard since prefetching forms the fundamentals of computing. Almost all tasks and functions possible today are based on this practice, from cache memory management, to main memory and graphics rendered on your browser, prefetching is used.

    Kuna wakati fulani hivi enzi za dial-up modems kulizuka sana wauzaji wa internet booster software. Hizi zilikuwa zina learn tabia ya mtumiaji wa internet kisha zinakuwa zinadownload pages zinazotembelewa mapema kwa kuhifadhi cache ya pages zilizotembelewa. Mithili vile browser cache au history inavyofanya kazi but at a much higher scale. Pia kulikuwepo na hardware based solution ili kuwezesha hiyo surfing acceleration. Hata hivyo kutokana na kuongezeka kwa speed za internet pahala pengi jambo hilo limepungua sana siku hizi.

    Katika swala la prefetching, kuna swala linalofanana na hilo la DNS; nalo ni web content compression ambayo inatumika pahala pengi, haswa kwenye handheld browsers kama Mobile Opera (naamini kuna browsers nyingine zinatumia technique hii). Hizi huwezeshwa na kampuni za browsers, kwa ku-compress pages kabla ya delivery na pale mtu unapokuwa una browse basi pages zinafunguka fully lakini while in transition zinakuwa ziko compressed. Mithili jinsi vile zip files zinavyofanya kazi.

    Kingine kikubwa kukumbuka hapa ni lile jambo zima la kuongezeka kwa wingi wa techniques katika utengenezaji wa web content na delivery. Siku hizi kuna HTML5 na IPv4, haya mambo yote yanachangia mgawanyiko wa jinsi ambavyo kile tulikuwa tumekizoea zamani kinakuwa kinatufikia, lakini pia kampuni za browsers zinaanza kujikimu katika mambo yanayowafaa wao na maslahi yao. Mfano Google kutengeneza browser ambayo ina incorporate google search na Microsoft kutengeza zao based on bing search na mambo mengineyo. Pia kuna technique kama CSS sprites katika web designing vinavyobadilisha kabisa namna ambavyo content za web zinakuwa delivered to users compared to how it used to be by minimizing requests to web servers by manipulating content but retaining context.

    Swali lako la google:- tayari google wame incorporate google search ndani ya chrome. Rejea article hapo juu aliyoweka Invisible pia inasema hilo.

    Hoja ya MS vs Google, hilo nalo linajulikana muda mrefu, google siyo threat tu, bali mshindani sambamba na pahala pengine zaidi ya microsoft. Kumbuka google walinunua licence mojawapo ya open source, Android, na sasa penetration ya Android mobile handsets iko kwenye 350% huko ulaya, soon wataiacha Apple kutokana na kuifanya OS hiyo ya mobile kuwa open source pia kuruhusu manufacture yeyote wa mobile kuweza kuitumia. Kuna google analytic, google maps na mazagazaga mengine kibao yote yakiwa yao! Microsoft imebidi wa-team up na yahoo kwenye search engine ili kuweza kuwakaribia google kwenye search. Na kwenye operating system pia google wanaproject yao kubwa tu ya Chrome operating system ambayo ikishika hatamu lazima itawachachafya MS. Hata hivyo MS wanasehemu yao, ambayo imewafanya waaminike na kutegemewa na ni vigumu kuja kupitwa... muda bado, may be huko mbele. Nayo ni kwenye wingi wa computer zinazotumia windows na MS office.

    Mzizimkavu sometime unajisahau mshikaji.


    • Hata kama una copy kitu jaribu kuangalia kama kimejipanga vizuri.
    • Image inasaidia kuwakilisha taarifa lakini dah sijui hata nisemeje
    ninapata wasi wasi kama unayasoma kwa makini taarifa kabla ya kuzipost.

    Any way take this as constuctive criticism.
