Browser Canvas Rendering Compete

Seb Lee-Delisle has created this wild test for browsers canvas implementations. It creates ting particles and renders them in the canvas element. Then it shows you the frame per second rate. This was just a simple test to see how browsers would handle computing and rendering millions of particles. FF was actually the clear winner still rendering at above 5 fps at around 3.6 millions particles! That's insane! The equivalent of 18 million particles managed every second (3.6 * 5/second). Chrome apparently will be updated soon though and should be able to at least match that. Not that production sites routinely render millions of particles, but it's certainly a good stress test that I find interesting.
