32-Bit vs. 64-Bit Browsers

If you didn’t notice any real difference after updating your browser to the 64-bit version, it’s quite normal. Here’s some benchmarks that show what variances there actually are.

The only two browsers that ran all tests without freezes or hangs were Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge. Every other browser experienced at least one freeze while running the benchmarks. Another interesting observation is that Vivaldi outperforms Google Chrome in some benchmarks and with RAM usage even though it is still a beta release. In addition, it did not freeze while running the RoboHornet benchmark while Google Chrome did.
