Why the difference? Everything is tested on the same connection under the same computer

  1. Google is the Fastest Browser with opera a close second and firefox and safari on opera's heels. I wouldn't be surprised if FireFox and Google merge to knock out opera or safari firefox wins some benchamrks vs. opera that google chrome doesn''t. Internet explorer tested lag check out benchmarks on tomshardware of these browser.
  2. That's not the case. I've done testing with Opera 10.6 and Safari v5 (latest build) and still both were about the same results with Firefox with difference of about +2ms in pings.

    Clearly this is an issue with chrome, but I'm not sure if it's developer side or my computer that's the issue.
  3. It's a speed/bandwidth test people, not a which browser can render faster site. using the same browser and same server on speedtest.net, I'll get 5 different results in 5 consecutive tests. Without knowing the load on the speedtest server and the random traffic at the time of the test, results will vary.

    Use your ISP's speed test page and you'll get much better results as there are less hops for the data to pass through.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Foundation#Financing Google and Mozilla are in bed all ready. So when ever they decide not to renew the contract Mozilla will lost their biggest supporter. Also when is the last time any one used IE? Only reason they still have a market share is that IE comes default with windows. If windows update worked with any other browser I would completely remove IE from any friends and family members I knew. :sol:
