Javascript, Chrome and Firefox

As you may have already experienced, Javascript on Chrome works faster than on Firefox. But today I’ve experienced the other way when using them on a virtual machine.

It was a virtual machine (VirtualBox) running Windows XP and on that Firefox seemed to be working faster and smootly than Chrome.

Especially when browsing sites that have rich Javascript content Chrome took longer to respond. Also it took longer to switch between tabs. Although switching appeared to happen immediately, it took time to render the page content even the page is completely loaded.

I’m very interested in exploring such stuff. May be couple of googlings will take me to the answer, but in the meantime I just blog it. 😉

  1. i’m using a older computer. (P iv 1.7GHz with 512 RAM) in that machine, Firefox takes ages to load, Chrome loaded quicker. But i got the same problem: when working with lot of tabs it took time to render the page content even the page is completely loaded.
