BeOS & Derivatives BeOS came with a relatively straightforward browser called NetPositive, or Net+ in shorthand. Especially by today's standards, it can hardly do anything more complicated than rendering basic HTML, so it isn't of much use. Luckily, Haiku has a successor now, born out of the HaikuLauncher conceptbrowser we talked about earlier: WebPositive.

But Chrome (which also uses WebKit) blows FireFox/Opera outta the water and manages to even outdo WebPositive (1,000ms+ vs. 4,000ms+) for now.


That part at least is a bit less surprising for the moment ; Web+ currently isn't using JavascriptCore's JIT mode due to it crashing for not yet determined reasons. Once this has been fixed, the times should be noticeably better.
