Once upon a time, a web browser simply displayed textual content, and also had the ability to change the layout of that content via HTML markup codes.
Makers of web browsers like to boast that their JavasScript interpeter is fast than that of the competition, and faster than the previous version. But are they telling the truth? Is there an easy way to find out?
So now, if you really want to know which of the 3 browsers on your PC is the fastest, or whether the latest version of IE really is faster than the previous one, you can find out.
And for what it's worth, running the test on my PC, Internet Explorer is actually around 10% quicker than Chrome.
