I don't think that's the case for me. Although, if I enable D2D acceleration, then Firefox 4 is seriously faster than Chrome. The only problem is that when you use it, the UI looks real pixelated. Also, the UI seems to slow down some. I'm going to wait until they get the kinks worked out before I enable it to use regularly.

The only thing that D2D acceleration does is move website page processing from the CPU to the GPU. It doesn't make websites load faster, at least not to the naked human eye. Unless you are on a slow CPU then offloading it to the GPU is moot.

The benchmarks I have seen are measured in milliseconds. There is no way for a human being to tell the difference in 4-5 millisecond improvement.

Put them to the test guys & girls

Post your Internet Browser Benchmark

I wont my Internet speed is ridiculously slow

EDIT: Since the last time i looked at this test it now wants to install an Active X control, so in the interests of security do so at your own risk

I was a long time Firefox user, but since I got my new PC with Windows 7, I've been using IE, and find it fast and easier to use compared to Firefox. IE is the only browser installed on my computer anymore (minimalist here).

Sorry, I'm not putting any Futuremark software on my computer. Thanks though.

I've used Opera as my main browser for so long, that I barely use FF or IE at all.
I gave up on FF as it got slower and full of more crap. I still have it, it's my 2nd browser, but I don't see it as really being any faster than IE now.

There's just too much involved and built in to all the browsers now for there to be any significant speed difference. If it's a few seconds or more difference, then yes, I can understand that, but it seems that everything is always measured in milliseconds, and that is just nitpicking,IMO.

IE 8 the impossible browser

IE8 is not only the slowest browser, but also the impossible browser in some case.
To see this, use chrome, Firefox and IE8 to view the following

Linear recursion (constent coefficients)

That can't really be a true test of any speed though. All 3 of the browsers I used for it were slow with converting it. It didn't matter which, it was a slow process all 3 times. I just wasn't going to try to time it down to split-seconds and stuff....that's pointless.

Not that I would ever have been on anything like that in the first place, but still...

Everyone will hate browser X and prefer Y. There's always going to be the argument. Until there is one perfect browser, capable of doing everything lightning fast, this will never end. (which, it never will anyway)

Im using FF 3.6.8 at the moment, I distrust IE after that whole hacking thing.
I also have Google chrome installed as a backup browser. In my experience, ive always found chrome to launch faster and to load webpages slightly faster. But again, usage is tracked by google, so i only use it if i have to.
