Comparison of rendering speed with Firefox

With the home page of Firefox and Pale Moon set to GIGAZINE, with the page cache cleared, compare the rendering time from displaying the browser to displaying GIGAZINE.

First, I will configure Firefox. In the "General" tab of "Options", we set the homepage to GIGAZINE by displaying the homepage at startup.

Then click "Delete Now" in "Network" of "Detail" to eliminate page cache.

This time is the setting of Pale Moon. I set it to open the homepage at the same time as starting with the same flow as in the case of Firefox, and made its homepage GIGAZINE.

Likewise, clicking on "delete now" from "network" of "details" cleared the page cache. Preparation is complete.

First of all, I will launch Firefox.

Since GIGAZINE opens, when looking at the rendering time of 'statistics' on the left side of the page'0.1369 seconds"Has become.

This time is Pale Moon.

Looking at the rendering time in the same way, "0.0795 seconds"was.

The rendering time depends on the environment and so on. Looking at the comparison result of this time as one example, it seems that Pale Moon seems to be a fast browser.
