Google: Chrome’s latest version is faster than Apple’s latest Safari

On March 8, Google said that the latest version of the Chrome M99 browser is faster and more responsive than Safari , even on Apple’s own Mac platform.

According to Google, its browser is the fastest on the M1 Mac, about 7% faster than Safari in benchmarks alone; while the Chrome M99 also set a speed record of 300 points in a benchmark created by the Apple WebKit team . Google notes that it tested it on a 14-inch MacBook Pro with a 10-core M1 Max chip and 64 GB of RAM, and then repeated the test on a 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro with 16 GB of RAM.

Chrome ran 252 times per minute, plus or minus 8.6, while Safari had 185, plus or minus 46. There’s about a 30% difference on average, but there’s also a lot of variability in Safari.
