Default Browser Speed Tests

While I don't own a MAC, I found these results quite interesting:

Interesting results. As a mac user I have always used Firefox as my primary browser with Chrome as my first choice for an alternate. Personally I'm not much of a fan of Safari and to me it has always "felt" slower than the others. I might have to take another look and see what I think now.

I'm a bit skeptical about the safari wins, apple does same thing that microsoft did with IE, namely having part of the browser starting up with the rest of the OS. There's a program that preloads parts of firefox on startup for windows that does same thing so it loads faster. I don't use it, that half second isn't enough to bother me so I don't remember it's name.

I'd like mention SlimBoat Web Browser for Mac as well. It's based on QtWebkit and runs smoothly on Mac OS.

Good to see SlimBoat for Mac, although I don't own one.
