Well Mozilla team is already well behind their schedule and Firefox 4 is kept on delaying. Hope they will stick to their new schedule and release Firefox 4 by early 2011. As compared to Beta 6 Firefox has updated few HTML5 elements.

    IE lacks behind everytime. I think Firefox should work more on it's core start up time. Only then it can survive the competition & lead.

  4. Saket says:

    It doesn't matter to me if Safari lagged so behind others, I am in love with the way it renders page <3
    By the way, it looks like you Tech18 has become a chrome fansite? :O

    HTML5 can be replace for Flash. So Flash will be dead in near future.

    HTML5 speed test finds IE9, Firefox 3.7 lead the pack in Windows, Chrome a distant last.

    I hate chrome because it chrashes everytime the flash is heavy but i still uses chrome because of its simple UI.
