After reading this article I just might have to give Safari a try. I currently use Chrome, but there is a bug in Chrome that irks me when I visit Ebay. I don't care for IE7, but I like to surf Ebay with Firefox!
SPAM-posters beware! ®
I just downloaded the new 4.0 --- i have to say, its hella fast compared to both IE and FF; maybe not as secure at FF but I like quick!
I did a quick, not entirely scientific, test on my box:
Konqueror 4.2.1: 587
Opera 9.64: 483
Firefox 3.07: 393*
* I already had a multiGB download in progress, and four other tabs open... so it might perform better in a re-test.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I just ran the benchmark and scored 512 with FF 3.07. What i find odd about this benchmark is how insanely high the scores are on intel systems compared to AMD systems. If this is a browser benchmark then why the heck does the rest of your system really matter? It shouldnt change that drastically depending on the system you have. I wonder if this benchmark depends on your network speed as well? When i get home ill try this out on dialup and see if my scores change.

I don't like it when companies resort to scoring higher in 'synthetic' benchmarks when trying to advertise a new or updated product. They may as well use it in real world performance like memory usage or how long it takes to open the browser etc.
