In the Windows 7 world, Internet Explorer has lost the popularity crown to Chrome back in 2016, but it usually ranks in tests behind Firefox and Opera as well. All in all, Chrome is the fastest browser to use on a Windows 7 machine these days.

Chrome and Opera are the first two web browsers a Windows 7 user needs to take into account, with Internet Explorer simply a no-go for now. However, its Windows 10 sibling, Edge, is a fast piece of code worth taking for a spin, but the tests performed by ZDNet's Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols only focused on Windows 7 browsers.

These are the results scored by IE 11, Chrome 56, Firefox 51, and Opera 43 in various tests (results come in the same order as above):

  • JetStream 1.1 - 64.47, 85.26, 76.44, 81.93
  • Kraken 1.1 - 5,094.4 ms, 2,267.6 ms, 2,850.4 ms, 2,585.9 ms
  • Octane 2.0 - 7,778, 14,426, 14,157, 14,863
  • WebXPRT - 150, 187, 183, 161
  • HTML5 Test - 302, 519, 471, 526

The tests mentioned above were run on an older machine with a Core 2 Quad processor and 6 GB of memory. Obviously, the scores would be different on other hardware setups, but the rankings would remain unchanged.

At last, it is worth being mentioned that the HTML5 Test checks the browsers' compliance with the HTML5 standard and not its speed. The perfect score is 550 and, as revealed by the results, remains untouched for now.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
