That is quite humorous ^_^
Also, I find this hard to believe. In personal experience, chrome is overall the most pleasant browser to use "Out of the Box". Safari 4 is incredibly speedy though, and in my experience loads pages notably quicker than Chrome. Not by much, but it is tangible. But a lack of "open recently closed tabs" feature and a duplicate tabs feature keeps me from using it. Opera 10 is also very speedy, the newest snapshot might be as quick as chrome, perhaps a bit quicker. Negligible. The application itself though isn't as fast.
In my experience, in terms of webrendering speed: Safari 4, Chromium/Opera 10, Firefox 3.1, IE.
