Before you start reading this article, feast your eyes on this. It’s the results of a fairly recent series of Windows browser speed and power tests carried out by Life Hacker, in which they pitted all of the top browsers (Opera, Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer) against one another in order to determine which one runs the fastest and the best. The results were…surprising, to say the least.
As it turns out, Firefox and Opera now both beat out Google Chrome in terms of overall speed and performance. In other words, Google Chrome isn’t the top dog of the browser world anymore (though Internet Explorer still falls dead last). So…what, if anything, does this mean? Should those of you who are currently using Chrome…stop doing so?
It’s still got a ways to go before it can compete. Sorry, folks…that’s just the way it is.
