This is my results when using FireFox:

And this is with Internet Explorer:

Why is IE have what seems to be a faster cache? I even tweaked firefox to be faster which seems to work on browsing from page to page but not overall speed!

Hi,

I am new here  ;).

I have a small problem regarding this subject .  :?

I took the speed test at MondoSpeed [sPAM] using IE, Firefox and Opera . 

With the same data size, the results don't match :

IE :        DownLoad Speed : 9001 Kbps    UpLoad Speed : 2233 Kbps 

Firefox : DownLoad Speed : 5512 Kbps    UpLoad Speed : 1439 Kbps

Opera :  DownLoad Speed : 2148 Kbps    UpLoad Speed : 870 Kbps

What can be wrong ? :?:

You're using a crap server to do your testing on.  Try one of the following servers.

I also tried that Mondo server and it said that my upload was faster then my download and I'm on 15/2 Fios.  860Kbps down and 1200Kbps up.  I would conclude that my original statment stands.  This is a CRAP bandwidth test.

the only accurate way to test is to set up two computerswith the same hardware with seperate connections and run them at the same time

Oh please.  I think I can fairly accurately figure out what my connection speed is by simply running a test server that I know to be close to my location (least amount of hops) and that has proven to be accurate among many users.  That just happens to be Testmy.net
