Benchmarks The latest browser benchmarks are in... again - seems like there's a new one every week. This is one of the best "browser battle" articles though. Chrome 13, Firefox 6, IE9, Opera 11.50, and Safari 5.1 are put through 40-something tests on both Windows 7 and Mac OS X Lion. As a PC guy I was pretty impressed with the performance of Safari on OS X, and the reader feature looks awesome too. The author also uncovered a nasty Catalyst bug that makes IE9 render pages improperly and freeze up under heavy loads of tabs. The tables at the end pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of each browser, which is nicer than a 1-10 or star rating. Good article, and thorough.

I stumbled upon a irc channel with web developers one day. I asked them about whats the best browser out there,, theese were pros at webpage coding, so I thought these would be able to give some good advice on the matter.

The response was: any.., any is good, just don't use IE.
They all seemed to agree about that.

IE is becoming better I think, thanks to mozilla and the recent excellent competition. But lets continue not using IE. I don't want to see the web crippled by MS again as it was during IE6. That were sad sad times indeed, and the IE6 monopoly of the past still affects the web today in many ways.
