King of the hill?

FF might be king of the hill for some folks, but it's not king of the hill for me yet since in areas that matters to me like rendering speed, page loading, javascript engine it is behind Chrome and Opera 15, even if not by much.

Certainly FF has tremendously improved in all areas and if speed is not what matters to you most, it might be the best browser.

Good thing, competition.

Your statement makes no sense. The entire point of the article is that Firefox beat the other contenders over all in regards to performance. Did it win in all categories and benchmarks? No. Did it have the best score all around? Yes.

I use the browser for browsing the web. Maybe you have other usage scenarios?

If the browser is slow at loading web pages, it is not the best browser for me.

But does it really matter if Chrome is a bit faster at page loading if a quarter of the pages are broken when they load?
