On Linux and normal HDDs I've found that Chrome (Canary and latest stable) take FOREVER to load.. well over 10 seconds. And that's with pretty much a new user profile!

Firefox hasn't had that problem since around version 3 or so, and it loads up in under 5 seconds depending on the number of tabs and extensions I have open.

So really, this is very much anecdotal and dependent on many factors. To the point where it might even be a useless statistic for all but the most basic users.
