Browser Wars (sunspider edition)

It seems that most browsers are focused on speeding up javascript execution now as most websites are heavy with ajax and complex js.

With Firefox releasing their pre-beta “dev” version Aurora this morning I decided to run all the current browsers through sunspider to see if any progress has been made.

Chrome-dev: 294ms
Aurora (FF dev): 324ms
Firefox 4: 348ms
IE9: 251ms
IE10 preview 1: 254ms

So it would seem that Firefox has sped up their js engine, but has a little way to go to catch up to the other browsers.
