Hello Yey456726,

Just curious where you're getting these Speed and Popularity ratings from?

Cheers,

I got the speed aspect from testing them all, I got the browser popularity from Wikipedia.

I've tried Chrome and Safari, I'm fairly certain Chrome surpasses Safari in speed.

Opera 10.5 grabs browser speed crown


well here........http://www.computerworld.com/s/artic...er_speed_crown

Opera Software's beta of Opera 10.5 leapfrogged every rival to become the world's fastest browser, benchmark tests show.

Released on Thursday and powered by a new JavaScript engine, Opera 10.5 beat all comers to easily take the top speed spot.

According to tests run by Computerworld, Opera 10.5 was nearly 15% faster than Safari for Windows and almost 20% faster than Google's Chrome, the previous No. 1 and No. 2 browsers. Opera's preview was more than twice as fast as Mozilla's Firefox 3.6, over eight times faster than Opera 10.10, and 10 times faster than Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 (IE8).

Wait, have any of you guys tried the browsers on Windows XP (x86) versions, because when I tried Chrome on Windows XP Home Edition (x86) it was terrible, But on Vista Home Premium (x86) it was about the same speed as Safari. On my laptop Safari and Chrome were about the same speed but Chrome slowed down a bit.

Nope. When my power at my house is restored (damn storm) I'll install XP and try it though.

I've tried all the browsers though on Vista and 7 (64-bit). I can say, that Chrome (for me), was the faster of them all.

Only on my Windows Vista laptop did it run the best the configuration I believe is

Windows Vista Home Premium (x86)
2.00GB RAM
160GB HDD
(It`s a HP Pavilion laptop of some sort)

Also, the XP Desktop configuration is...

Windows XP Home Edition (x86)
512MB RAM
120GB HDD
HP Pavilion a462x

According to my own tests Chromium 5.0 surpasses Opera 10.5 in every benchmark. Opera 10.5 is definitely the closest though out of IE8, and Firefox 3.7a2.

Tests I used were peacekeeper, css3 selectors test, v8 bench, slickspeed, c5bench, dromaeo, acid3, and sunspider.

That I agree with. I should've mentioned earlier I was referring to the dev builds of Chrome. Which I always use.
