Browser Wars! (Late 2010)


Recommended Posts

Because of the unique methods that testmy.net employs benchmarking of browsers is possible. This is not the case with most other speed testing sites. Flash and java based speed tests have it all wrong IMO.

Here are download tests that were taken moments apart and you can see the difference of how each specific browser has handled the test. There are many contributing factors that lead to the discrepancy. But, what this shows you is that testing here can really lead you to the fastest browsing solution.

These were all tested on my girlfriends Macbook (it's like a 2006 model and it performs that well)

Normally Chrome performs better for me... but recently there has been bobbles... may need a fresh install

Webuser... don't be afraid to post your compID. It reveils nothing personal about your computer ;)

Oh and those numbers where your hostname should be... just means that I had a hard time detecting your host... working to resolve that, it's not always as easy as it seems.
