For fast, you can try this one. I had a few problems with it, but that could have been just me.

i dont see how you can say that any one browser is faster than the other definitively, it varies by cconnection and speed, for instance on my machine, the order of speed on the "big 5" (excluding safari as i havent tested it) goes as follows

on a broadband connection:
Chrome,
Firefox,
IE8
Opera

on dialup:
Chrome
Firefox
Opera
IE8

it depends on machine set up, and whether or not your pc "likes" the software (in the same way that sometimes software will seemingly seem incompatible for no discernable reason)

What about speed of getting the job done, i.e. usability and stuff being in a logical place so you can do things quickly. Firefox with a few extensions wins by a mile. It always takes me half an hour to find anything in super fast Chrome so it kind of defeats the purpose. Opera I haven't tried lately but it messed up so many web pages in ver.9 I couldn't persevere with it.

To me they are all about the same. We are actually talking about micro-seconds here for the most part.

From my experience:
IE8 will be the fastest browser (at certain sites).
Other sites, Chrome will always be faster.
And others, it will always be Firefox.

By the time you step back and take an objective look at the whole picture, they are all about on par with eachother when it comes to speed. No major differnence in the overall scheme of things.

In the end it all comes down to a few key things:
mainly which one suits your needs the best, most user friendly or ease of use (to that particular user) and comfortable to get around with. This is what matters most.

Unless of course it really matters to you that browser A loaded Seven forums .05 seconds faster than browser B.

just saying

My 2cents for what its worth.
