    Clearly the author is biased in favour of Microsoft since almost all the results for IE6 were somewhat better than those for Firefox 1.0... <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>

    The setup used to carry out the tests do give some interesting results. Those test show the Moox builds of Firefox to be slower than the official release, whereas just about every other comparison between the two shows the Moox builds to be faster. Not sure why they chose to test Mozilla 1.8 as it is only an alpha build that will not be released and is riddled with bugs, it would have been better to test the Mozilla 1.7.x release.

    I wonder whether he tested the free version of Opera or a paid/registered version? I would think loading ads would slow the thing down. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
