2011 Browser Benchmarks

Q: 2011 Browser Benchmarks

As you can see I benchmarked a few browsers using the website 'PeaceKeeper'
Here are the results I got:
It was rather a shock to me when I saw Firefox so low, They need to get to work as they will soon be over taken by IE9!

What browser do you use and what are your thoughts on these results?

RELEVANCY SCORE 200
Preferred Solution: 2011 Browser Benchmarks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: 2011 Browser Benchmarks

Hi, D3LL!

My thoughts on benchmark results, when it comes to browsers, is that they're a great raw measure for developers but seldom translate to real world experience for users. Keep an eye on FF. You tested 4.0b8 and 4.0b10 is much faster, benchmark-wise. For my daily use, I've always found FF to be the fastest but this is an area that has been hashed out at least 100 times within these forums to varying levels of passionate degrees and vociferousness.

Hello forums, I captured 21 videos of different games and benchmarks of my ThinkPad X220 in order to help people who are interested to find out how much graphical performance the X220 has and if you can do light gaming with it and uploaded them to my YouTube channel. Have a look here. Ii hope they are helpful to make a decision for buying a used X220 :-) Best regards, Janni

SO I went to The HTML5 test - How well does your browser support HTML5?

and out of all my browsers IE9 32bit scored the lowest and SR Iron scored the highest.

BUT according to this video which is running benchmarks from the MS site -
IE9 is kicking butt and the others fall short

YouTube - Internet Explorer 9 vs. Google Chrome, Opera, and Mozilla Firefox

I duplicated the test with the same results - IE9 rips through it and the others lag up

Are these benchmarks geared towards the different browser engines thus generated varied results between tests?

should I consider a conspiracy or am I being silly

A:How honest are Browser Benchmarks with HTML5 tests?

The HTLML5 test is reliable theres no conspiracy against IE9

The speed reading demo at Internet Explorer 10 Test Drive was written By Microsoft using code they have developed of course its going to make IE 9 look good. If that code makes it into the HTML5 specs the other browsers will probably incorporate it.
Similar demos written by Google Chrome show IE9 in a bad light

I don't particularly like using Internet explorer for my web browsing, but HP SImplePass always opens up windows of Internet Explorer with my finger-swipe feature. I can't find a way to change the browser that SimplePass launches to something like Firefox or Google Chrome. Does anybody know if it's possible?

Hello,

My firefox seems to be infected with the Security Fix 2011 Hijacks. I keep getting popups that I cant close.

I went through some of the posts in your forum and found others with the same issue. I downloaded and ran combofix after turning off the microsoft security essentials. Its only after running this, I realized that risk of running combofix without help.

When I ran it, it first creates the system restore point successfully and then starts scanning. Its currently stuck in the screen where it says "that combofix typically takes 10 minutes to run, but sometimes....."

I am pretty sure its stuck and wondering if I should restart? Since I ran combofix already, my internet connection seems to be disabled so, I have no way of getting the DDS file to be able to post here.

Please do help removing this malware.

Thanks

Hi and thank you guys for your help
My problem is I'm getting hijacked when ever I click on a google result search. If I copy and paste the link I get to the required site ok, but I'm afraid I have a nasty trojan or malware stuck on my laptop. Also I got stuck with Win 7 Security 2011 which I removed via the registry but I'm not sure I did that successfully either, I had trouble with opening .exe files after and subscribed to speedmaxpc to correct. I downloaded spybot to try and clear the malware, but it didn't clear the hijacking. I have McAfee security suite installed.
I am operating Windows 7, I don't have a boot disk, I do have an upgrade disk but not the original Vista disk that was installed when I purchased the laptop.
Thank you again for your help - appreciated:

My system has been invaded by XP Antivirus System 2011 and the following happens:
1. System is painfully slow.
2. Any page I navagate to on the internet (including my homepage) is hijacked by the AntiVirus warning page and it will not let me refresh.
3. Malwarebytes will not run. I was able to run it in Safe Mode and it detected several threats but even removing them didn't solve the problem.
4. I have a fake Control Panel security page showing firewall is off etc and if I try to repair, I get invited to run the fake Anti Virus system.
5. Pop ups warning of dire consequences keep popping up telling me I must run the fake Anti Virus.
6. McAfee has totally missed the malware and a scan I ran detected no threats - very worrying!

I am only able to access the internet properly via a second profile on this computer. I have prepared according to the instructions in that Defogger has been run, and DDS as well ( I had to download these onto another computer and transfer the files). However, GMER crashed on me. Here is my DDS log etc.

Hello,

My Firefox seems to have been hijacked by a virus that brings up "Windows Secure Kit 2011" install popups.

Currently Malwarebytes is preventing any pop up from popping up.
Also, I've run AVIRA antivirus (and deleted 5 infected files), ran GooredFix (can post log if requested), and TDSSKiller (detected nothing).

I have a feeling the virus is not completely gone, and since there is no restore point for some reason (and I also cannot re-install Windows as of now), if someone could help me (probably fixing the registries that were changed), that would be amazing.

Following is the log from DDS (I deleted my name):

Picked up System Tool 2011 somewhere, google search results are being redirected, ran Malwarebytes, updated first, did not find anything the first time. Ran AVG 2011, updated first, found 4 trojan horses. While AVG was running a BSOD appeared, system restarted. I restarted normally, BSOD came right up. Restarted in Safe Mode, ran AVG again, it found about 3 trojans. Ran Malwarebytes again, in safe mode, it found one registry value infected and 2 files infected all with Rogue.systemtool.

After finding and removing those things in safe mode, restarted normally, got BSOD right away, tried restarting again normally, it started ok, no BSOD.

That's all I have done so far but, still getting redirected google results.

I just came across the forum through Hijack this and starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. A few days ago I picked up one of the Vista Antivirus 2011 virus/malware which included some sort of browser hijack where it redirects 90 percent of every URL I click on in google.

Prior to finding this forum, I downloaded CCleaner and Spyware Doctor and ran them with some successes. I think I've gotten rid of the Vista Antivirus 2011 but the browser redirect hasn't been solved and neither program is finding the problem.

I've disabled any malware detectors I had running, disabled the CD Emulator, ran DDS.scr and RKUnhooker.exe as seen on some similar posts. I've included the txt files here with the exception of the one I'm supposed to zip to attach. Attach.txt.

Looking forward to whatever help I can obtain. Thanks in advance.

I just got a new laptop and was wondering what kinds of benchmarks would be good to make sure it performs as well as it should. I'd like to know how to compare it to similarly configured laptops in games and multimedia applications.

Also, is there a way for me to see the make of RAM I have. I know how to find out the amount, but it never says the manufacturer.
 

A:Benchmarks

A quick search for laptop benchmark came up with this CNet page. It shows how they benchmark their laptops, and what programs they use to do it. Worth giving a quick read, at least.

To find out the make of your ram, you can run CPU-Z. It's free, you can download it by clicking the link under 'latest version' in the top left corner of that page. When you run it, click the SPD tab, and it will show vendor information, if it's possible to show it for your system. Some RAM manufacturers don't show, I think. Otherwise, you could just open your memory access panel on your laptop, and take the sticks out (while the laptop is off, of course), there should be a sticker or model number or something on them. Put the number into Google and see what comes up. Good luck!

Hello, Everyone I was wondering how do my benchmarks add up if they are strong or weak in performancew for the last few days i was using msi kombuster but with crappy results ussually round 3464 tottal score

This was bugging me for a few days wondering why my card sucks so much im running a hd 5770 now that i discovered a more updated version of msi kombuster these are my new results can someone tell me if good or bad i just did one test not even in full screen next test will be the 1680/1050 full screen im submitting the first three shots and from there i hope to hear some feedback i also couldn't adjust the first resolution it went back to those setting

Thank you in advanced

A:My Benchmarks

Good scores. I have to admit, the 5770 is a better card than the 260 in a lot of ways, but its driver support was so bad that I returned the card out of being sick of it...

Other than that, looks like its doing good.

the eight-core Intel Core i7-5960X Extreme Edition with Haswell-E based setup on the X99 chipset platform. This setup is running tweaked at 4.30 GHz. Next to that we have energy saving functions disabled for this motherboard and processor (to ensure consistent benchmark results). We use Windows 10 all patched up. Each card runs on the same PC with the same operating system clone.The drivers are:
GeForce cards use the latest 375.76 driver (download drivers).Radeon graphics cards we used the latest AMD Radeon Crimson 16.11.3 Driver (download drivers).

Curious about the relative performance of two of my computers, I have made the comparison using benchmark software I have on hand. Fresh Diagnose is the latest release, 5.80.

Fresh Diagnose Benchmark:

Ext. Clock 133 MHz

Fresh Diagnose Benchmark:

816 MDIPS
Speed 669

Callmark BM System test:

------------------
Assuming these benchmarks are valid tests of system performance, is there something I can to improve the performance on the SY-7ISA+ system (Computer #2)?

I've set jumpers for the automatic detection of processor speed. What is the correct PCI clock setting and clock ratio for this processor? I'm using 133Mhz X5.

Does a Celeron processor provide improved performance over a similar speed VIA Cyrex?

Is there a better benchmark test for these systems? I believe Computer #2 should outperform Computer #1, but maybe I'm missing something.

Hi everybody.
this is my first post on TechSpot...
and I`d like to ask a question(or two or three):what about the x1950pro AGP?
anybody seen it work?

avalability?(europe/germany)
will it really be coming?
Have I spent 200.-? on the wrong card?([email protected])
 

A:x1950pro AGP!anyone seen any benchmarks?

Funny thing, we were just discussing this in the Socket 478 thread in the cpu/chipset forum.

I don't believe there is any hard data on this and it's likely just a rumor right now. Similar rumors occurred when Diamond made a typo on their website and listed an X1800 as AGP when it was a cut/paste job overlooked from an X800 HTML page they modified for the X1800.

I'd imagine hkpc or Tom's/Anannd's will get some solid info should there actually be any hint of an AGP based X1950. For now, it looks like the X1650 series will get the best chance of an AGP flavor.. but the X1950 is still only "rumor" material as I know of no local oem's with even so much as a future SKU or partner hint for the units.

I was looking at this article that was comparing benchmarks of low-end processors. Generally they looked at Celeron, P4, Duron, and Athlon processors on the Anandtech website:

http://www.anandtech.com/cpu/showdoc.html?i=1927&p=12

This test showed that the 1.6Gig Duron Processor and the P4 1.8A Gig Processor both out performed the Intel Celeron Processors. They only tested the one P4 Processor, and it was the cheapest one available on the market. I think a slower P4 processor would actually be a better buy, but Intel just does not make them. They would be a better buy than the Celeron's Available.

The Bottom line is a Celeron is not worth buying. They are basically junk. I think a 256k L2 Cache would significantly improve their performance. The present 128k L2 cache is just not large enough for the processor speed. So Buyer beware.
 

A:CELERON AMD P4 CPU Benchmarks

The 300a Celeron was the only worthwhile Celeron chip. It could OC to 450 & wasn't as crippled as the new versions have been ( slow FSB, small & crippled Cache, overall lackluster performance ).

For people that only use the PC for Office work, I guess it's not so bad. They don't heat much so they generally have very silent cooling systems.

Other then that, I don't see why anyone would want such a chip.

How do I go about improving a CIS score? I'm confused about the benchmarks. Is this just a list of recommended settings?
 

A:Belarc: CIS Benchmarks?

You'd need to change the settings that are shown as failing. They give a description of each, but don't mention where to change them though.
Many are set using the Local Security Policy tool, or the Group Policy Editor. Neither of which comes with XP Home. You can edit the registry directly to change settings though.

This link lists many of the registry keys that have to be edited directly, and lists the recommended settings.
For XP Home, the Group Policy Settings Reference spreadsheet can be searched for a specific setting to find the key to set in XP Home.

To set File permissions, you need to turn off simple file sharing (Control Panel | Folder Options | View, uncheck Use simple file sharing, last item). For XP Home, you'll need to reboot to safe mode to see the security tab, or download the two reg files from this post of Elvandil's. Be sure to run the undo reg file when done.

These are just recommendations, and are geared more for a business environment rather than a home environment. The Auditing settings for example, forcing users to change passwords, only allowing strong passwords, minimum length, etc, might not be useful at home.

My score has never been higher than 1.88.

I have seen postings about computers being slow. Are there any benchmarks that one can use to see if the computer is running as well as expected, given the RAM and the processor speed? Many thanks.
 

A:Speed benchmarks?

When people say there computer is running slow, they normally mean its running 'slower' than it used to and want to know why. This is normally down to spyware, background processes, fragged harddrive plus any number of things.

As for benchmarking, there are many types Dhrystone, Whetstone, PCMark, plus ones for graphics cards (3D mark), look at the following sites www.futuremark.com and www.sisoftware.net.

However be aware that whole subject of benchmarking is a bit more subjective, the same cpu on a different motherboard will give different benchmarks even though the cpu is clocked the same. So just because your setup doesnt give exactly the same as someone with 'apparently' the same setup, its not worth trying to track down why (all very clever electronic magic)! Oh and benchmarks do not always represent a true real-life performance.

A couple of weeks ago I tried unsuccessfully to install Visual Studio 6 on my XP Home SP2 box. Since then, the performance has been poor. One thing probably has nothing to do with the other but that's when I started to notice that Firefox took 10 to 15 seconds to load and the XP splash screen stayed up longer on a reboot. I've defragmented and run and error check on the hard drive and it has no bad sectors. This evening I downloaded FreshDiagnose and benchmarked the read and write speeds of the hard drive. The read speed is excellent -- over 200 MB/s but the write speed is pathetic -- 3.47 MB/s. This is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320 GB SATA-II drive (the parallel recording technology.)

The CD benchmarks are pretty low too. I have a Memorex 16X DL DVD+-RW but the read speed is 3.67 MB/s.

These are all connected to Gigabyte 965SP motherboard having a Pentium D 3.4 gHz processor. Not overclocked and the temps and fan speeds are within normal ranges.

Any ideas? Thanks.

This happens with every game. It just laggs for a second or two (sound plays tho) And exits to Desk without any information.
Also All the GPU benchmarks Freeze after a few secs of work (sometimes whole PC so i have to restart it). I`ve noticed no exact GPU load or temperature numbers (it stays below 50-55).
But one benchmark (userbenchmark.com) managed to go through and showed extremely poor GPU results of ~10%(way below normal in 3D).
Also when i surf around on my pc quickly(swapping between windows and scrolling intensly) image freezes, turns black for a milisecond and goes back to normal condition as `twas. huh..

I just upgraded due to a PIII 450MHZ chip ceasing to function. I went to a PIII 650E chip on the Gigabyte GA-6VXE+ motherboard. I had the same motherboard with the PIII 450 and it was working fine for about a year, and that upgrade was from a micro-ATX motherboard for more slots and higher max on the CPU upgrade. When I took the computer in to have it checked for not booting they originally thought it was the motherboard and replaced it with a new one, but later found that it was the processor. So the Gigabyte GA-6VXE+ motherboard and the PIII 650E chip are new. I had just re-formatted the hard drive for a fresh start and installed the normal programs and Norton Utilities 2000. Under the Norton UT 2000 system benchmarks my PIII 650 was getting fluctuating benchmarks from anywhere between 50.0 to 301.0. The computer's performance also coincided with whatever system benchmark that came up running slow with low system benchmarks and normal with the high benchmarks. I thought at first it may be the voltage supplied to the CPU but the motherboard is auto detecting voltage. I feel that I'm heading down the same road as my previous processor, and while everything is still under warranty, I want this taken care of as soon as possible. Can you help?

I can generate a custom report for those with a specific need. For example, maybe you are shopping for a new graphics card and you might want to know which graphic card has benchmarked the fastest using your existing CPU and motherboard. I can run a report and get you that information.

Cheers
