Final Result

With all tests above, final score for each browser is as follows (excluding test with memory extension). Maximum score : 35.

* Google Chrome 4.0.249.78 (stable): 24
* Firefox 3.6: 20
* Firefox 3.5.4: 21

* Opera 10.01: 15

Although Google Chrome is not powerful in all criteria, but it’s score is highest. You should consider Firefox if your memory is limited. But now, I think, memory is not a problem anymore.
