By the Numbers: the Fastest Browser

PC Mag: Google's Chrome hit the world with blazing speed, but is it still the fastest browser, or have IE, Firefox, and Opera caught up? The answer might surprise you. (Firefox, Google, Software)

IE won wow

Wowie, 2 milliseconds! I'm switching away from Firefox and all of its fantastic features to IE TODAY!

That is surprising. I have nothing but bad things to say about IE. It's very slow and laggy for me (this is IE9 btw).

So I am very surprised at the result.

why are they doing this with an old version of Chrome anyway? Is Chrome 23 faster than Chrome 24 or something?

The stats were posted on Jan 3rd, before Chrome 24 came out.

Not sure i'll trust that, I use both chrome and alittle i.e/

i.e is buggy as hell, somesites don't even support it anymore,lol. Crashes a lot.

Chrome is better all rounder imo.

Or just use Maxthon which uses both styles.

New Internet Explorer is vastly better than the older version. Same goes for Safari. But I gotta say, Firefox and Chrome have gotten so much better in the content department that I'll just stick to those. Or Chrome.

wow, according to this, opera is the worst <well almost>. i dont know, i tried others, i found opera to be the best. maybe im seeing something the stats aren't showing or im not seeing what the stats are. either way, i know im not ever going back to IE.

TBH it is all personal preference. I used IE 9 day in day out on Windows 7 and never had an issue for what I used it for but I did try chrome, Opera and firefox but it did not offer me the same experience as IE9 did.

I now have Windows 8 on my work pc and I have bought a Surface and I have to say IE10 touch and none touch improves again over IE9 and again offers me a better experience over the other browsers for what I use them for.

It really all is on personal choice just like some people would pick an ipad over a surface or a 360 over a PS3. No one is wrong it is just what they like the best out of there options.

Waterfox is the best although it is never included in any of these comparisons.

A true 64 bit version of firefox that has a unfair advantage over the rest. Super fast.
