Which is the fastest OS Linux browser

For the Linux operating system, there are a variety of browsers - from popular to all platforms, Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera to the lesser known and specifically designed for Linux - Konqueror (for KDE) and Gnome Web (the Gnome browser). Looking at the latest results from the LinuxQuestions poll, we will see that the most popular Linux browser is Firefox with 51.7% of users' votes, Chrome is second with 15.6%. The other browsers have only a few percent. Firefox is the most popular browser for Linux, but it's really the fastest. Let's look in more detail.

How it was tested

For testing Linux browsers, the stable version of Ubuntu 16.04 is used. The hardware is the Asus CM6730 with the third-generation Intel Core i7-3770 processor with a clock speed of 3.4 GHz, 8 GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 620 graphics card. The most popular browsers have been tested: Firefox 51, GNOME Web 3.22 (Epiphany), Google Chrome 56, Chromium 56, Opera 43 and Vivaldi 17.7. Each new round of tests is performed on a re-installed browser without any additional settings.

The fastest Linux browser

1JetSteam 1.1

This is a JavaScript speed benchmark based on the already aging SunSpider. Several tests are combined to show an overall performance estimate. Tests from SunSpider 1.0.2 and Octane 2 are included. Here are also tests from the open source LLVM project compiled for JavaScript using Emscripten 1.13. In addition, here are the HashMap tests from the Apache Harmony project, as well as the Java Cdx real-time test, also compiled for JavaScript. In this test, the higher the score, the better.
Here are the results of the JetSteam 1.1 tests
Chromium - 180,89;
Chrome - 179.77;
Opera - 178,84;
Vivaldi - 176.84;
Web - 172,94;
Firefox - 163,38.
The result is a bit unexpected: Chromium is first and Firefox is the last one.
2Kraken 1.1

Another SunSpider-like test that allows you to measure JavaScript performance. In addition to basic tests, the results of typical scenarios are included here. The test was created by Mozilla. In this benchmark, the lower score is better.
Opera - 988,84 ms;
Chromium - 989.5 ms;
Chrome - 993 ms;
Vivaldi - 988.4 ms;
Firefox - 1 088 ms;
Web - 1 121 ms.
It looks like Chrome's Opera is the first one, and Chromium is the second one. The trend for the slowest browsers began to shape - these are Firefox and Web.
3Octane 2.0
Octane 2.0 is a performance test for JavaScript created by Google. It includes test scenarios and the work of modern interactive web applications. This test was created not only for Chrome and can measure the speed of Microsoft TypeScript compilation. In this test, the higher the ball is better.
Google Chrome - 31,737;
Chromium - 31,454;
Opera - 30,979;
Vivaldi - 30,772;
Firefox - 30,628;
Web - 27,949.
The difference between different browsers is not very large, but the allocation of positions is quite expected.
Speedometer is a test created in WebKit to test the performance of the browser itself to assess how quickly it responds to user actions. The TodoMVC frame is used for imitation work. The Speedometer repeats the same actions using the DOM API. Testing for six different frames is done: ember.js, Backbone.js, JQuery, AngularJS, React, and Flight. The results are measured as the number of actions per minute and the higher the result is better.
Google Chrome - 113.2;
Vivaldi - 112.3;
Opera - 108,5;
Web - 107.2;
Chromium - 97.23;
Firefox - 44,6.
It is no longer so strange that Google Chrome is the first, but it's too unexpected that Chromium has come down so far and Firefox has the worst result.
To date, WebXPRT is considered the most comprehensive browser test. He uses special imitation scenarios to implement daily actions and their speed of execution. Six HTML 5 tests are included, as well as JavaScript tests - image processing, album sorting, graphics, and more. The higher the rating, the faster the browser is.
Firefox - 353;
Web - 294;
Chrome and Opera - 282;
Vivaldi - 244;
Chromium - 231.
Here's Firefox coming out first. Google Chrome is in the middle, and Chromium shows the worst result.
6HTML5 Test
The last thing to check is whether the browser complies with the HTML5 standard. This test is not a benchmark and only shows how well the browser's capabilities are synchronized with the latest version of the standard. The ideal rating is 550 and is not received by any browser, but they get closer.
Chrome - 519;
Vivaldi - 517;
Opera - 512;
Chromium - 505;
Firefox - 471;
Web - 386.


If we summarize the results of all tests, we will see that Google Chrome is the fastest browser in the Linux operating system and best supports HTML5. Almost the same can be said for Chromium, which is not unimportant if you are using a 32-bit computer. We can look at Opera and Vivaldi, which show amazingly good results. Unfortunately, Firefox is one of the slowest, and the Web is not worth paying attention to because of poor HTML5 compatibility. And are you using other browsers? What are your impressions?
