KDE "We always knew that WebKit is going to make Konqueror fast; but how much faster? Today we test that by putting Konqueror with KHTML through the SunSpider JavaScript Test and the then do the same with WebKit. To get an idea of how fast they are compared to other browsers, we also decided to put Firefox 4.0 Beta 2 through the tests."

Serious question: Is this difference mostly negated by the performance of your Internet connection?

It depends. If a web site has few scripts but many graphics, yes.
If a web site uses many scripts and few graphics (many Google services come to mind), it can be very noticeable.

JavaScript execution is not the only client-side performance factor. Complex HTML and CSS rendering also takes its performance toll even after all web site files have been downloaded (eg is totally unusable with my Firefox installation).

Thanks for that info.

Also not bad, but performance seems okay for me ;)
