at first Mozilla scales much better with CPU performance (that's because it's so fast on modern Computers and starts to become unusable below 500MHz) and second this only tests JS performance. Interesting, that the self called "fastest browser on earth" it way slower than Mozilla or MSIE in around everything. I fact this doesn't affect real-life that much I think. IMHO other values are more visible (redraw-times or obening a new window), also making the different windows more independant, would give much visible performance - it's not that funny, if rechecking a big newsgroup prevents the browser from working.
