IE8 vs. Google Chrome 18 vs. Firefox 11 vs. Opera 11.6 vs. Safari 5.1
Windows XP edition.
Despite very positive Windows 7 reviews, it still remains the #2 operating system, right behind everyone’s beloved Windows XP. And although trend favors Windows 7, it does not mean that the XP users should be left behind. Since Internet Explorer 9 won’t run on this OS, guys at TomsHardware have decided to test IE8 against the top 4 web browsers.
Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702
Google Chrome 18.0.1025.142m
Opera 11.62 (build 1347)
SafarI 5.1.4 (7534.54.16)
So what happens when you combine all the benchmark results? Opera wins.
Ranging from highest to lowest:
Opera (21 point)
Google Chrome (20.5 point)
Firefox (12.5 point)
Internet Explorer 8
So here you have it, if you want to use the king of all web browser, you can’t go wrong with Opera or Google Chrome. Internet Explorer 8 on the other hand remains the web browser to download other web browsers.
