    Browser rendering engine feel: Webkit (Safari), Blink (Chrome) or Gecko (Firefox)?

    Which browser engine “paints” the smartest on my device? In the clip below; Surf substitutes for Safari and Chromium for Chrome. My blog is the testee since there’s guaranteed cache control and jitter.

    Webkit (Safari/Surf/+) > Blink (Chromium/Chrome/+) > Gecko (Firefox/IceCat/+)
    Index: Cache · Source

    Surf and by extension Safari (or any Webkit–based browser) wins . Webkit feels smooth (sneakily, too smooth). It’s probably partly why Safari on macOS/iOS feels so fast. Chrome (not Chromium) is almost on par or so I’ve been told. Not exactly web dev but interesting huh?
