But when you have average office computer, you can compare speed of browsers by simply using them (I mean how fast browsers feel). Today we have 4-, 6-, 8-cores in CPUs. Chromium uses them all. Firefox uses only one.
If he's using nightly aurora, then multiprocess (Electrolysis or e10's in Firefox speak) has been enabled since May, so he very well might have it running in multi-process.
