Firefox Beats Chrome in playing 8K60 in CPU Usage!!! (21% Vs. 60%)


The Comparison Used the latest Versions of Firefox and Chrome Using a Ryzen 3800x and 1080TI, playing a 8K60 video from YouTube caused Chrome to use 60% CPU, while Firefox only used 21% CPU.


the first image shows Chrome, and the second image shows Firefox.










My thoughts

I think Firefox is underrated in many aspects. it can handle a lot more than Chrome.

Totally not biased. Also, it says "Auto" on the quality option, so it doesn't necessarily mean the video is actually playing at 8K. Not to mention what settings are used and whatnot (HW acceleration is especially important)

That test in OP's post is bollocks.


I have the same GPU (1080 Ti) and a CPU that is 3½ years older than the one in the original test. They've clearly messed around with browser settings, or they have Windows Update running at the same time.
