Internet & Networking "There is a speed war on the web. Browsers compete on many fronts; security, standards support, features and speed. Most people are aware of which major browser fails on three of these, but one of them is still open for grabs. Speed." On Windows, Opera was the fastest browser, while on Linux Konqueror performed the best for viewing basic pages (however, as soon as images, scripts or frequent use of back/forward buttons is involded, Opera is faster). On MacOS X, Opera and Safari perform the best. Overall, Gecko-based browsers did fairly poorly.

This benchmark seem rather old.
From the Linux benchmark page:
[/i]"The tests are done on SuSE Linux 9.1, using KDE (except Epiphany, whose results are shown for Gnome, as that is its normal operating environment). .. (snip) Opera 8 tests were done using Opera 8 beta 1. Mozilla 1.8 tests were done using Mozilla 1.8 alpha 6. Firefox 1.5 tests were done using Firefox 1.5 beta 2. Opera 9 tests were done using Opera 9 technical preview 1."[/i]

This Benchmark is at least six months old. Why is it on the news page?
