I just finished testing all the browsers I have in Dromaeo, Mozilla’s Javascript performance test suite. Here’s what I came up with: FF 2 (loaded with plugins): 10815ms; FF 3.0.1 (no plugins): 1789ms; Chrome:444ms;Safari 3.1.2:1961ms; Opera 9.5: 1765ms; IE 8, 7, and 6: Crashed. FF 3.0.1 Linux: 2044ms. I’ve excluded FF 2 from the chart because it wasn’t really a fair test.

Test specs: Windows XP Pro SP 2. Intel Core 2 6400 @ 2.13 GHz, 3 GB RAM . FF 3, IE 8, and Chrome were run from a Virtual Machine.
