Filed under
Software

With Internet Explorer 9 being acclaimed as the fastest ever browser client from Microsoft, DaniWeb decided to put it to the test against Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari and see just how quick it really is in a real world test of web browsing speed.

Cold test

Each browser was setup to point at www.happygeek.com and then started from cold, immediately after the computer was rebooted in order to judge initial first use speed. In fastest order, the results were as follows:

1. Chrome 9.8 seconds
2. Opera 11.9 seconds
3. Safari 13 seconds
4. IE9 13.5 seconds
5. Firefox 18.4 seconds
