Whoa!
Apple (News - Alert) launched today Safari 3.1, the world's fastest web browser for Mac and Windows PCs.

The web page loading speed of Safari is 1.9 times higher than that of IE 7 and 1.7 times higher than that of Firefox 2. The browser is also able to run JavaScript six times faster than other browsers.


and yet people will continue to use Internet Exploder. 'cuz they stupid.

Hell, maybe I've found my Firefox replacement.

(And maybe not. How well does Safari extend?)

Actually Firefox 3 beta 4 is even faster than Safari 3.1. Check out these benchmarks;

Safari does better on Acid3 but nothing beats Firefox + Firebug for web development. (And yes, there is a Firebug beta paralleling Firefox3 beta)

Is it true what I've heard about how Firefox 3 finally fixes the memory leaks? Because if that's true then I can stop worrying about finding a Firefox replacement right now -- Firefox 2 is easily fast enough for me until it starts to petrify, so if Firefox 3 doesn't petrify then I'm happy.

Yes the memory leaks are fixed. Although I've never really had the memory leak problem.

(Of course, I won't mind a 2x or 3x speed increase. But I'll be happy just to have a browser that doesn't bog down and eat itself.)

Yes, because all of Apple's current Windows apps are just fabulous.

*cough*

So get Firefox. Or Opera. Or get a mac.

Using Exploder is just dumb.

I only use IE for things that require it, and interacting with my websites as a customer.
