No where near as fast as Chrome? Give me a break! There are quite a few benchmarks where IE9 does better than Chrome like hardware acceleration and even javascript. Latest adobe beta also works better on IE9 btw. IE9 and firefox4 come fast from behind and Chrome is no longer the undisputed performance king.

Pfft benchmarks really don't show you much, im talking about real life situations and for me Chrome is faster. I have all the major browser and their betas (FF4, Opera 11) and on my computers Chrome is still reasonably faster, when according to the benchmarks Opera and FF should be speeding ahead.

It really depends on what set up you have and how decent you Internet speed is.
