i like IE.. faster.. more holes but nothing is perfect.. i checked out the other browsers.. and none feel "right".. ill stick with IE, until someone can show me a browser that loads up pages as fast as IE and with out all the bells and whistles..
I think what Gadget is trying to say is that we keep hearing this (That IE is faster) but there are no tests (that I ahve found) that show this to be true. The exception is on initial program start. IE loads faster.
I have tested this myself but not to any extent (three systems only). What I found was that they are the same. Infact, overall FireFox was faster than IE in my last test, but its site dependant.
I don't doubt that IE may "feel" faster than Moz engine stuff. But do you know of any place where they have a bench that shows this to be true?
This has been an argument before. People say "IE is faster" but then it turns out it only "feels" faster or they think its faster 'cuz someone said it was.
Then of course - since its a pain - no-one wants to actually check.
I figured out why people think IE is faster. It is because it seems to sit there and do nothing and then load everything quickly, all at once. It evens does this on my connection from the university (of course, this is only a fraction of a second here - but still, you can see it).
Here is further proof that IE is NOT faster. I just went to dslreports and tested both - if IE is some how magically faster than other browsers it should show up here too, right?. They both posted exactly the same numbers....
