Once again Safari is the kind. Safari 3.1 beats everything except for Safari 4 beta, which crushes even Safari 3.1. Opera was a little slower than Safari. Chrome was generally comparable to the various Firefox browsers, but overall slightly slower. Like Firefox 3.1+JIT, it was very on error handling! Of course IE was the slowest by far, but at least IE8 is faster than IE7. Maybe IE8 is shipping with debug symbols included (as Microsoft has often done in the past) and the release candidates will be much faster than the betas. Or not.
Anyways, Chrome, and its V8 engine, does well, but does not seem to be ahead of Firefox and is certainly behind Safari and Opera. Maybe they can do better on the Mac!
