Just from those 2 quickly, it looks like chrome sucks.
Chrome should really be discussed in the Apple forum, seeing as Apple wrote it.

??? I know Apple wrote Safari, after all it is their browser, but as Chrome is Google's browser I assumed that Google wrote it.

Are you saying that Apple wrote it for Google???
In the world of competing browsers and the associated advertising revenues, I find that difficult to believe.
I would genuinely be obliged if you could point me towards the relevant evidence.

That's right, Apple wrote it. Ask in the Apple forum.

According to this from Wikipedia

Chrome was assembled from 25 different code libraries from Google and third parties such as Mozilla's Netscape Portable Runtime, Network Security Services, NPAPI, as well as SQLite and a number of other open-source projects

WebKit was originally derived by Apple Inc. from the Konqueror browser's KHTML software library for use as the engine of Safari web browser

Is this the same browser that a few years ago was being proclaimed by many as being far superior to Microsofts' Internet Explorer?

How the mighty a fallen!!! tongue


but it still is, which proves that IE must be awful, which it is.
I would still use firefox over IE any day.

But another browser is out that is better than Firefox,

So discuss it in another thread, preferably in the Apple forum.

It is the start up speed of Firefox that annoyed me, It takes ages before it starts up. Iron is pretty quick.


Webpage loading on both Firefox and iron is pretty quick, but Iron don't crash as much as firefox does, also the sandbox system Iron uses is a nice idea. One tab crash, it don't affect the others.


Speed tests are to be honest a waste of time, with different speeds of computers and internet.

I also like the way the address bar works on Iron, firefox is still stuck with the extra search box.

You look at both of those results that you linked to and they don't match up
