Google Chrome speed

The general comments from the Web is that G-Chrome has a decent speed. But my little experiment did not support that.

I have a javascript implimentation of Lempel-Ziv compression. I applied that to a file of pure ASCII text of 363382 bytes. Here are the times that each of these browsers took to complete the task:

Mozilla Firefox 23.765s
Microsoft Internet Explore 7.0.5730.13; 37.812s
Google Chrome 138.046s

Google Chrome is the slowest by a large margin.

However for the decompression:
Mozilla Firefox 0.625s
Microsoft Internet Explore 7.0.5730.13; 0.671s
Google Chrome 0.115s

Google Chrome is the fastest by a large margin.
