I created a port of the benchmark on bubblemark.com for cairo using D
(digitalmars D) and Python. See below some comparative figures. It is
a simple test with 16 bouncing balls in a rectangle 300x500 pixels, in
most implementations each ball is a png or is rendered into a bitmap.
I don't know how much overhead is involved with firefox plugins but it
is still interesting to compare. I also tested with IE7 and got
sometimes slower and sometimes faster results.
DHTML (Firefox 184.108.40.206) 52 fps
Silverlight (CLR version) 75 fps
Flex 68-78 fps (varies probably
because of JIT)
Java Swing 58 fps
Cairo Python 45 fps
Cairo D 89 fps
So it looks like cairo is quite speedy.
