I havent tried the 'double firefox speed' mods yet, but certainly intend to.I tested each of these browsers 15 times.My Firefox 3.0.7 with addons scored a fairly consistent average of around 260ms. I had 2 scores in the 190ms range and a single time it went up to 421ms.IE7 scored in the 2700ms range.Chrome scored consistently in the 160ms range, never below 160ms or above 170ms, which impressed me.I note that on the top of the page there is a link for updated tests, so I went to that. He has a version of the test issued in 2007, after the 2006 version on the first page. I tested each of these browsers again 15 times.On this test, my 3.0.7 with addons was scoring about 470ms, with a low of 312ms and a high of 522ms.IE7 scored in the 1500ms range.Chrome scored an average of about 420ms.Interestly he points out at the bottom of the page that you cant really compare numbers between computers though, all the browsers need to be used on the same computer at the same approximate time and conditions.Obviously its hard to tell in real terms between the faster ones, but the lag between clicking 'run test' and seeing the results displayed is maybe a reasonable guide to how much difference there actually is. With Firefox and Chrome, the results appeared almost instant, and to be honest I couldnt tell the difference,

I have IE 8 installed and got 890ms… And it is a great deal faster than the old IE7.. I love it..But there are a few teething problems though… The only reason I stick with IE is because that's what the majority of people have. That way I can answer their questions about it… I have tried Friefox and it does have some great features that IE does not have.January 6, 2010 at 10:28 am #30289
