Apple’s Safari 5 is quite snappy, and does feel faster than Safari 4. Though Safari’s Nitro JavaScript engine may have a very slight raw performance advantage, the benchmarks we ran show that Apple and the WebKit team certainly have some areas where it can improve—both in JavaScript performance characteristics as well as optimizing performance for animation and other graphics rendering. All this fierce competition among Apple, Microsoft, Google, Mozilla, and Opera for “fastest” browser, though, ultimately benefits all users in the long run.

    Not only that, but you said the tests show Chrome is 2.27 times faster than Safari, don’t you mean 2.27%?

    There’s no way Firefox is faster than Safari on a mac, that’s a lie. Safari beats the pants off of Firefox any day of the week but nice try though lol

    Don’t even get me started on Chrome, it will never be anything remotely close to Safari. All Google products are spyware and spamware. 99% of spam is propagated by google.
