Slashdot News Story | Mozilla Unleashes the Kraken

Or something like that. I ran a couple tests here:
According to those numbers, Firefox 4 beta 7-64 is horribly fast when compared to the IE 9 platform preview, and moderately faster than Chrome 7.0.517.5. This is a horrible apples to oranges comparison, the only right way to do this would be to have all browsers running in 32-bit mode, but this benchmark is so damn long that I am going to let somebody else take a shot at it. That said, it is nice to see at least one 64-bit app that seems to work faster than the 32-bit counterpart. 

Update: IE 9-32 Beta

I guess all this whining about benchmarks got to somebody...
