The script engine is just one of these browser subsystems. There are many benchmarks for script performance. The SunSpider test is the one of the most common script performance test that is conducted while looking for the performance of the browsers. The chart below is showing the results that have been obtained on running these different browsers on the same machine. As you can see this chart is showing the relative performance of various browsers that are in market (chart for performance of latest versions of browsers is not available yet, it will be published as it gets available).Apart from the above test, there are many other tests that are conducted for checking out the performance of the browsers that you and i use. By the way my personal favorites are Chrome and Opera :) One of these tests is Acid3 which tests about 100 aspects of different technologies (many still in the “working draft” stage of standardization), including many edge cases and error conditions.
