Think about this statement:
- “We are moving to a Google that knows more about you.” —Google CEO Eric Schmidt, February 9, 2005
- And yes Jenn, I know you like Google Search better than Bing
Ok, that’s mean for me to say, after all Google’s stock is over the roof price wise, but hey, Eric Schmidt said it.
Of course there isn’t a Google employee reading your email, but the search engine reads your email so that advertisements can be served to you efficiently.
Many people like that feature. I don’t so I use Hotmail. Oh yeah, I work for Microsoft. So much for the validity of that statement.
Anyway, let’s take a look at actual numbers:
Chrome versus IE as of 5/17/2011:
As of 5/17/2011 Chrome has 102 security vulnerabilities over the past three months
As of 5/17/2011 IE9 has 14 security vulnerabilities over the past three months
Oh well, their stock is in good shape. Again, Microsoft is good at what they do, and they apparently have gotten the Internet Explorer thing working well with the GPU acceleration. Good.
Now let’s take a look at performance, which is pretty close, but only if you compare IE9 and Chrome, IE10 is FAST!
- Number of seconds (the left hand number) lower is good. Number of paintballs per minute (on the right hand) higher is good.
Looks like Chrome needs to shine things up a little. Might want to start with the security thing.
The paintball looked bad, but the Maze Solver is terrible.
Maze Solver, over 6 minutes, IE 9 did in a blazing 52 seconds, IE 10 34 seconds
IE 9 64 bit
The paintball demo looked ok, but after IE10 looked slow
