I have pointed this out multiple times.

Browser render speed is almost irrelevant in the real world.

Say it takes 300 milliseconds to load a page.
IE takes 30 milliseconds to render it.
Chrome takes 3 milliseconds to render it. (10x faster)

Now Chrome is 10X faster at rendering. 1000% !

But total page time is:
IE: 330 ms
Chrome: 303 ms

The actual total page time difference is under 10%. Not really withing human detection range.

Use the browser you like the best. I have tried most.

I use:
Firefox as Main browser: Most configurable, most plugins, best plugins.
Chrome as backup: Getting better all the time, but not quite ready for my #1 slot.

Installed but not used:
IE if something doesn't work on the above, which is nothing, so I never use it... supports fewest standards, fewest add ons, Microsoft does update often.

Uninstalled:
Opera: I used it for many years before switching to Firefox, Most recently tried 10.51, but too many quirky behaviors and poor setting import capability.

You people are talking when you are having very high dsl connections....for which there may not be any difference BUT if you have very slow dial up connection then you will understand the difference. For very slow dial up connections, OPERA is the best.. I used it and I found that no other browser could open a page except Opera.

I have been using Firefox since long time but now I think Chrome is superseding....I never use IE....why to use it when we have more sophisticated browsers?

Yeah, because it has Turbo (Compression) technology that relies on their servers to compress a webpage for you. But the thread title is about IE8 vs Chrome.

I am not "anti" Chrome, FireFox, Opera, IE, or anything...IMHO, whatever makes 'ya happy! I am not a fan-boy of anyone's product. (hell, they don't pay me, after all!)

However, I simply am not impressed with Chrome. I tried it, it ran ok, not noticeably faster than IE, but then I do not give a crap about "benchmarks". I simply use the internet daily for a multitude of tasks, want to successfully acces that which I utilize, and have a set-up that I am comfortable with.

Now, I may be more comfortable with IE for the simple reason that I have spent the most time with it, so that is hardly a scientific analysis. On the other hand, I can say without hesitation, for what I use a browser for, Chrome gives me no discernable speed enhancement, and to me, has a more awkward layout in general...so I stay with IE. I understand that Chrome probably is faster in a number of ways, but if I can not "feel" the difference, and I can not, then those speed advantages really are meaningless to me.
