I don't think that I've ever heard of this browser. Thanks for educating me MPC.

BTW, how multithreaded are these benchmarks? I hear that HTML5 has given us some, albeit very limited, tools for doing bona fide parallel processing in JavaScript but do these benchmarks us it?

Got it a few months ago and use it for the uploading and sharing aspect, similar to Google drive minus the compression Google uses on videos. Otherwise I like it.

I'm trying out the browser now and so far it DOES feel faster than chrome. Though that could be because I don't have 10 extensions installed.

But I really like maxthon right now, might even consider making the switch permanently, and that's coming from a guy with a google logo in his profile. Biggest complaint right now is the lack of extensions support.

You want faster, IMO? Use Epic Privacy Browser. http://www.epicbrowser.com/

I have Chrome, Firefox, IE 11, Maxathon and Epic installed. Each one serves a purpose. I used to have Opera. Why? I just like the feel of each depending on my mood or the site I am on.

It's funny how epic is still faster than pretty much every other browser out there even though it routs all of its data through proxies.

Am I the only one who feels like when benchmarking time is down to milliseconds, you're just having a pissing contest over who's faster?

Honestly, as long as you can't tell the difference, the speed doesn't matter too much In a browser. if it gains or takes battery life, that matters. Security matters. Features, such as multi device syncing matters. The look of the icon matters. Good job, chrome. I wouldn't give up security and battery life just for another millisecond saved

No. lol I totally agree with your thinking.

Exactly.... Because fast is fast when it's that close and also you have to consider other factors such as Chrome's sync feature

Nope, you are not alone in that line of thinking.
