As always, remember that speed is not the only thing your browser has to offer. Each browser has a number of unique features and characteristics, all of which you should factor into making your choice of which to use. However, while you can easily peruse a list of features for any browser, you can’t easily compare their speed, and that’s why we’ve put this together. It’s just one more way to compare browsers as you make your decision. Also keep in mind that everyone’s computer is different; your numbers may differ from ours, but the differences between the numbers should be the same.
