Google Chrome and Firefox speeds blow past IE, Opera

The test compared Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 Release Candidate 1, Opera 10.00 Alpha, Firefox 3.1b1, Chrome, and the WebKit r40220 developer project included in Chrome and Apple's Safari.

Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox (along with WebKit) left the proprietary competition in the dust:

Hmm. Just downloaded Chrome 20 minutes ago and it lags in places where IE doesnt not but is very fast where IE is not. Seems about the same to me.

Love Chrome, its simple user friendly design is probably why the speeds differ from the more complex browsers.

I like Chrome better so far in the 20 minutes of messing around with it.

No...that's just your computer. Firefox and Chrome definitely run faster than IE.

sretlaw3552d ago

I feel bad for anyone who still regularly uses IE, and doesn't know there are other (much better in every way) options out there.

LoVeRSaMa3552d ago


I know you don't know what your talking about in terms of consoles, but web browsers too?

*Hands Why_dis a book or something...

duplissi3552d ago


lol yeah why dis confuses me too. i facepalm every time i read one of his comments.

drewdrakes3552d ago

Well its just a javascript test. So i wouldnt count on switching making your computer the ultimate internet machine.

Why dis3552d ago (Edited 3552d ago )

I'm not anti MSFT so No I have not tried Firefox lol.

I have trouble comprehending your reasoning with every post all you make.

On my computer the two browsers seemed the same speed and I like Chrome better than IE. Never mentioned you peoples favorite browser or FireFox lol.

LoVeRSaMa, are you kidding me? You can train chimps to control their emotions better. WTF? Its like I offended you guys.

If you have trouble with my posts ignore me as I do with all you most of the time. My brain blows up trying to understand you people.

"My brain blows up trying to understand you people."

POG, for the last 3 years or so many MANY users on this site have had the same thing happen while trying to understand anything YOU say! And don`t come back with the "Who`s POG?" nonsense. Only good liars get away with it.

LoVeRSaMa3552d ago

@Why dis

You dont have to be "anti MSFT" to have a different browser on your PC.

I believe in having top notch Software and top notch Hardware which is why I run Windows XP and have Firefox...

and whats this about Training chimps?
Please all you talk is pure crap, people have picked up on that which is why you get Dissagreed with every time you talk.

Please stop being such a Microsoft fan boy that you have to defend its Internet Browser also...

duplissi3552d ago (Edited 3552d ago )

I don't know anyone who uses IE as their primary browser most people I know use Firefox and, like me, use IE for back up, but Firefox has been my only browser for a few years now. It needed some tweaks here and there (FF3 was reskinned with the FF2 theme, as an example), but I'm generally pretty happy with it and I can't imagine using Chrome, IE or Opera over it.

Liquid Snake3552d ago

Out of Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and IE.

Firefox gets my vote.

But only problem with it is, how do you make new blank tabs, besides pressing CTRL+T and press Mouse 3 button on links?

On IE7 you have that mini tab on the big one. Click on the mini one and bang, you got a new tab.

Anyone know the answer to my problem?

Liquid Snake3552d ago (Edited 3552d ago )

Lol i just realised you can right click and select new tab.

I have only being using Firefox for a week.


dkgshiz3552d ago

all the benefits of firefox. You can basically change anything with it.

duplissi3552d ago

theres a plugin for a new tab button that goes next to the last tab just like in ie heres the download link \/

RyuStrife3552d ago

haha why trouble with addons? Just double click the tab bar and a blank tab shows up.

duplissi3552d ago

i love to customize, so naturally ill use addons

firefox is better than both

dkgshiz3552d ago

Opera sucks, as does IE. Google Chrome looks a little kiddy to me. Plus why use it when theres firefox? Unlimited add ons and themes. Your not going to get that with Chrome or any other Web browser.

LeGenDx3552d ago

whats wrong with opera, i been using it for a year now an i like it!.
