Octane is a JavaScript benchmark developed by Google. We ran the latest version, 2.0.

For this benchmark, a higher number is better.

Chrome set the bar high:

octane_chrome_october_2016

Firefox couldn’t match it:

VB TRansform 2020: The AI event for business leaders. San Francisco July 15 - 16

octane_firefox_october_2016

Edge jumped right over it:

octane_edge_october_2016

Given that Octane was developed by Google, it’s surprising that Chrome isn’t winning this test. This is the same order of results as last year: Edge first, Chrome second, and Firefox third.
