That is so important, speed... is it 0.3 or .05 seconds before you see the page :o) To me most important thing is security and feel of the browser. Thats why Opera, an excellent browser but it is just to much going on. Chrome from other side is clean, simple but include all I need.

Why there isn't opera?
Opera is fast too. I cannot tell which one is faster between chrome and opera.
But only fast speed is not enough. We also need some build-in and helpful features (Add-ons just slow my browser or even the whole computer). That's why chrome and opera are fast but I still use a small Avant browser.

"The fastest web browser in the realword" right...
My problem with Opera is that it starts slowly compared to Chrome. It got like no security ever, while Chrome got Sandboxing and is soon introducing NACL. I think I will stay with Chrome for a while.

I agree. Chrome is the best browser. And Andrew, will you ever use Disqus as the commenting system. Check them out Disqus is used by Engadget, IGN, CNN, and others. I would consider looking at this.

Hi Michael, Thank you for your message. The CMS of this site is developed by my self. I have no plan to use Disqus.

I have tested IE, MF, op, and chrome together.
And chrome was 1 of the fastest.
