After requesting the input from #LinuxRocks, these were the 5 browsers I decided were representative enough to include in the test:
Especially after the first Quantum release, Fireofx feels definitely faster than it was before on Windows 10.
On Linux though, I didn't notice it so much. Most probably this is related to hardware acceleration.
That being said, I didn't expect the numbers to be so low for Firefox on some benchmarks. It doesn't feel that bad visually.
the results are quite surprising I must admit....but like all things you gotta try them yourself to decide what works best for you...I think im gonna try some more browsers myself...I didnt kno about falkon
I personally go with what feels best. For instance, I use qutebrowser because I love navigating with keys, instead of using a mouse. I didn't even know it was so fast, before doing these tests.
