I meet he is from England and its not what we are looking for cuz folks over their are not on the up and up on software.

He is from Scottland so he is fine.

I looked at google for it and i get asian language sites.

So...how is it? Still the slowest browser on the planet (aside from IE7 of course). Delay when opening new tabs still there?

Cripes they have to fix that interface though.

Sync Tests = meaningless bullcrap.

Real world testing always shows FF being the slowest however it is quite stable and very flexible. I myself use all 3 FF for work, IE at home and work for tricky sites and Chrome at home for everything else.

Chrome is the fastest, followed by IE and Firefox is a bit of a slug, but has some nice plugins.

I'm testing the RC1 of IE8 and it is more stable than beta 2 for sure.
