"Knowing the top speed of a car doesn't tell you how fast you can drive in rush hour. To actually see the difference in page loads between all three browsers, you need slow-motion video. This oneâ(TM)s also a tie." - What the fuck does this even mean?!? Whenever a new browser comes out I load up a wikipedia page to see how it handles text, hulu for video, and ESPN to see how it handles rotating ads. The browser that I found that works the fastest with the lowest memory usage is Opera. And that was out of Firefox, IE7, Chrome, and Opera. But my big problem with this statement is that Micrsoft gives itself a check on performance on the argument that chrome and firefox are only a little faster?!? Seriously?!? How do you acknowledge that your competitor has you beat and still give yourself the check?
"Only Internet Explorer 8 has both tab isolation and crash recovery features; Firefox and Chrome have one or the other." But Opera has both, so it's not like IE8 is the only browser with these features.
And how does IE8 even lay a claim to the most security. It's a very well known fact that nearly every bit of malware is written for IE browsers b/c of the share of the marketplace they have. Last time I checked there was almost no malware written to exploit chrome, only a few for firefox, and lesser known browsers like Opera, and Konqueror had none.
