  • Aaaaah…. I am using Chrome. I have used IE and Firefox earlier, but my new browser from Google beats both of them… It’s sooooo fast… There were times it dissapointed me. But a little tweaking has improved it’s performance in my PC. Now the latest version comes with Flash integrated and I am sure this will make life lot more easier for many of us. However I am not sure if my version can handle HTML 5 yet. I am using the Dev. version as I am using LastPass…

  • love chrome, using iron which is chromium based right now

    Why do you post a comparison that is far from being up to date? I don’t know exactly about Safari and IE, but Chrome, Opera and Firefox have all released newer stable versions. Why not compare those?

  • Google Chrome is a great browser indeed, waiting eagerly for Chrome 5, which includes many new features! 😉

  • By the way I forgot to mention this.

    Day Two: No One Even Attempts Hacking Chrome at Pwn2Own Competition

  • My best browser is Firefox, I have installed 4 browsers in my Comp, Firefox is default, Flock for social media and Opera for my personal use. And IE only to test if the CSS changes I made works on it 😀 I’m not interested in using Chrome.

  • Chrome might work out well for other users, but I have reverted back to Firefox. The reason being the extensive collection of add-ons which Google chrome extensions are not yet an alternative. Thanks for the share.Interesting read!

    This “benchmark” provokes me a bit and make me wonder: Why is the test based on updated versions of all browsers APART from Opera?

    Opera10.00 is a year old, current version is 10.51 and way faster than what is shown here.

    Is this just a marketing trick to make Chrome look good??

    OMG! Internet Explorer sucked at all tests?

    Are you kidding me? I was an avid Firefox user for last 7+ years and now for last couple months almost exclusively use Chrome. the only times I use Chrome is when I have to use my Videodownloadhelper extension. IF that extension comes to Chrome, it is bye bye for Firefox.. IE Is a piece of garbage and only use when no other way out…

    “the only times I use Chrome is when I” should be replaced with “the only times I use Firefox is when I” 😉
