Stopwatches at 30 paces.
The results show that Safari is slower than both IE 7 and Firefox in the login page and message index tests, in both cases by a substantial margin. Only when loading Google Calendar does Safari have a slight edge, clocking in at 12.8 seconds to IE’s 17 seconds. But even there, Firefox has both the other browsers beat.
Safari on Windows is not slow. The question is, are you willing to put up with a Mac-like interface, wonky text anti-aliasing and some weird rendering, without your FireFox plugins? I’m going to give it a try and see how it goes. It’s a lot to ask.
Bonus: Scott has video.
I am not getting in the middle of this one.
