Comparing UX technologies for performance

For people who are figuring out what direction to go as far as future technologies is considered, here's a 3rd party community effort to get that answer as far as performance of the various technologies go:

the same javascript is used to animate in various RIAs so that the results are isolated to the performance of the platform itself. Technologies compared are Silverlight (JS & CLR based), Flash (with Flex), Java (Swing) etc.

Long story short:

  1. Different browsers behave differently to the RIA frameworks. Best is Opera and worst is FireFox.
  2. "The unexpected is that WPF/e is faster than Flash despite the fact that it’s been in the market for years."

The source code is available and community has posted their results using the code.

Conclusion: start using Silverlight!
