Of course they don't however, what I should have said, was that margin of difference in this benchmark is way too great. I wonder what could cause such a big discrepency. These results reflect other people's experience with Chrome but for me, it's slower than FF all round.
Looks like I have some investigating to do

Thats a joke, right? IE has never loaded pages faster then FireFox/Chrome for me. Also, is your Firefox 'Optimized' in any way (about:config tweaks to speed it up)? When I say Chrome is faster then Firefox, I mean with its default settings.

I shouldn't have to tweak a browser to make it faster then another.

I suppose as I've said in the past "Different hardware, different setups, different results" but geez.

When was the last time you did a clean installation?

my system isn't even a month old. I've just been trying Chrome here at work and it's terrible. I put it and FF side-by-side and opened the same web page. FF loaded it fast, Chrome didn't load it completely at all..I got sick of waiting and closed it! My work system has nowhere near the specs as my home rig but still...

Last question. Which version are you trying. Stable, beta or dev?

What I find odd is that I never have to wait on Internet Explorer to load....ever. So why switch to a "faster" browser?

IE loads quickly at startup; it just doesn't load pages nearly as quick as FF and Chrome - at least on my machines. That can make a big difference for those with slow internet connections.
