Default How fast is your internet browser?

Using the SunSpider Javascript benchmark, you can see how fast your Browser is working.

I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 and Firefox 3.5 RC2. My score was 1131.4ms.

Everyone do the SunSpider benchmark, post your operating system, and internet browser and we can all compare results!

To get to the SunSpider browser benchmark click the following link:

I have to agree with Gingerbee... even if you were interested in knowing how fast your browser is, java benchmarking would only give you a part of the equation, not the answer.

Hey it's only a bit of fun... I'm just interested in how different browsers + operating systems perform.

It would also depend on what else is being ran on the system, the rig specs itself, etc
