Mac Daniel's Advice

Browser Comparisons: Script Speed

Dan Knight , 2005.02.14

The charts below are adapted from Browser Speed Comparisons. "Supplementary" browsers are not shown, and colors are used to differentiate operating systems. Color code:

  • Mac OS X: red
  • Mac OS 9: green
  • Linux: yellow
  • Windows XP: blue

On each of these graphs, the shorter bar represents faster performance.

Scripting is very common on the Web, and when it comes to running scripts, Opera is king - the top five browsers in this test are versions of Opera on Linux, Windows, and OS X. Opera 8.0 for OS X takes 5th place, and Safari 2.0 for OS X 10.4 takes 10th. This is one area where Mac browsers really need to improve.
