Microsoft Corp. says that its own speed tests prove Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) is faster than either Firefox or Chrome.

In a report released last week, Microsoft spelled out how it tests browsers in-house, and again stressed that it doesn't buy the idea that benchmarks -- such as those that score JavaScript performance -- accurately compare the players.
The company timed how long it took each browser to completely render the 25 most-popular destinations on the Web, as ranked by the Web metrics firm comScore Inc., which included,,, and others.

IE8 was fastest in rendering 12 of the 25 sites, said Microsoft, while Chrome took second by beating the others on nine sites. Firefox, meanwhile, was a distant third, coming in first on just four of the 25 domains.
Both Opera and Safari for Windows have shares of less than 1%, according to the most recent data from Net Applications Inc so these browsers were not tested.
On contradictory to this when Computerworld last tested the major browsers' JavaScript performance, immediately after the release of the public beta of Safari 4, IE8 ranked last.
so guys I leave the decision to you as being the end users who are working on different platforms your experience might be the unbiased and true comparison.
So do check out all the browsers and decide which suits u best! Till I come up with something more interesting you guys drag your computers out and test the microsoft's claim.
