To compare browser speeds, Computerworld ran SunSpider, a benchmark suite used to gauge JavaScript performance, three times on the following browsers: Chrome 5, Chrome 6, Firefox 3.6.9, Firefox 4 Beta 4, Internet Explorer 8, Opera 10.61, and Safari 5.  The tests were run on machines using Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. 

The results revealed that Opera 10.6.1 was the fastest, with Safari 5 and Chrome 6 right on its heels. In fact, the number one spot is barely held onto by Opera, as the difference between it, Safari 5 and Chrome 6 is just 12 milliseconds.  Rounding out the speed rankings in order were Chrome 5, Firefox 4 Beta 4, Firefox 3.6.9, and Internet Explorer 8.

Although Chrome 6's numbers are impressive, Google will have to keep its wheels churning to keep its spot in the speed race. Mozilla plans on releasing Firefox 4 later this year, and on September 15, Microsoft plans on unveiling a public beta version of Internet Explorer 9. Regardless, the heated competition between the companies will benefit consumers the most, with more features and faster browsing performances being offered.
