Lol these results are way wrong...


1Gbps Solid connection





You get a great connection to some places, not other. Pretty common with all Gbps right now.  Even commercial. Thanks

A download manager, torrent, or FTP would typically download faster than a web browser, since they don't have to update the graphical page layout and run JavaScript. Even a direct linear download (or a few of them) via the same browser to disk with all tabs closed or inactive would be faster. I've never used newsgroups, but I'd guess those clients are also more efficient. Using modern "web apps" for heavy duty data transfer (web torrent, videos) is strange. I guess they can work if you have a fast space age computer, but I don't see the point.


During testing with TestMy, I observed that the browser would keep all the downloaded random data in memory, until the tab with TestMy was closed, and when memory was exhausted, it would try to write this data to disk to the temporary cache, which is typically heavily fragmented from downloading small web files, like images, and becomes a bottle neck. Tests were reasonably accurate only during the first couple runs after a fresh startup. Otherwise, it is not so much internet speed that was measured, but instead the "browser speed".
