Broswer Wars Reloaded: Javascript speed, Acid tests

I should not show the IE 7 results, because they are embarrassing and Trolls will accuse me of being a zealot. But i can sense that other zealots' blood-lust is building up!!
So here are the results:

Sunspider test (less is better)
  • Firefox 3.1 beta2: 1997.6ms
  • Chrome : 2240.8ms
  • Firefox 3: 4293.4ms
  • Opera 10 alpha: 5088.4ms
  • Safari 3.2 : 5418.4ms
  • Opera 9.6 :5494.2ms
  • IE 7: 42412.8ms
  • Safari OK
  • FF3 OK
  • FF3.1b2 OK
  • Chrome OK
  • OPERA 10 alpha OK
  • OPERA 9.6 OK
  • IE7 NOT OK
Acid 3
  • Safari 75/100
  • FF3 71/100
  • FF3.1b2 93/100, getting close.
  • Chrome 79/100
  • OPERA 10 alpha 100/100, well done Opera!
  • OPERA 9.6 85/100
  • IE7 11/100

Acid3 on FF3 (71%)

IE 7 (11%)

Acid 3 on Opera 10 Alpha (100%)

You can run the tests yourself here:
Your results in sunspider may vary according to your PC specifications.
PC specifications: Core 2 Duo 3.2 Ghz 2GB ram XP SP3 (Tested on a friend's PC, didn't use Linux in order to test Safari & IE)

I had 3142.2ms +/- 2.1% on sunspider with FF3 on linux. That would be around 25% better than your results. This is on an E8200 (2.66 GHz). It should be fun to compare Win/Linux numbers ;)
I cannot post the link to results as it looks dreadful. Juts try yourself from your distro of choice.

its fun to see IE7's results, it just shows how bad the browser is. i'm still really suprised when i see colleagues in the programming industry use it.
