Speed Test: IE9 Vs. The Rest

Wall Street Journal: Speed Test – IE9 Vs. The Rest

In speed tests using a stop watch, Microsoft’s new Web browser Internet Explorer 9 fared reasonably well against rivals such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox which were previously thought to be much faster than IE.

“In the continuing tug of war between apps and the Web, Microsoft offered a little bit of both last month in its beta release of Internet Explorer 9, the latest iteration of the world’s most popular Web browser. IE 9, as it’s nicknamed, is designed to make websites look richer, respond faster and behave more like the apps installed on your PC so you forget that you’re browsing the Web.

Alas, you are still browsing the Web and the occasional sluggish behavior doesn’t always magically abate after downloading a shiny new browser.”
