is google capping fps at 60?  seems odd that they all top-out at the same number

No, but the IE speed tests on their website are capped at 60

As an avid advocator of v-sync, I don't see the point of rednering more frames than your monitor can display, unless you want fugly tearing. So as far as I'm concerned, a cap of 60 FPS (v-synced or not), is pretty logical.

Also, it's interesting to see Google using Microsoft's benchmarks. I guess they examined them and decided that they're browser agnostic, and thus fair. In any case, IE9 beta is working really nicly for me (and stable - zero issue so far). It's pretty zippy.

Chrome should really also benchmark using Microsoft's 'definitive' benchmark at www.WebVisBench.com.

So when we will be talking about IE14, Firefox 7, and Directx 18, we will be talking about how Chrome 65 renders pages in -4 seconds and gets infinity FPS?

I'm running 7.0.517.5 and I still get 1FPS on IE Fishtank.

Dynotaku, did you happen to use the switch --enable-accelerated-2d-canvas ?

Hah hah wow now it's even less than 1 FPS. Maybe I'm not putting the command in right.

Right click on the icon in the task bar, then right click again on "google chrome" then properties then add the switch at the end right?

C:\Users\folders\chrome.exe --enable-accelerated-2d-canvas

Just like that right? Do I need " around the path or something?

No I had some other command in there that some tech blog insisted was the right one. I'll give this a shot.
