Arrow The Big Beta Browser Benchmark Bonanza!

The Big Beta Browser Benchmark Bonanza


So, Recently I've been experimenting with many different browsers
and wondered for myself exactly which one was the best, and how they all compared.
So I bring to you all, my results of equal testing between these top competitors:

(If you'd like a browser here, PM me or post below and I will test.)

* Google Chrome Beta (Beta) Version: 28.0.1500.29 beta-m
* FireFox Aurora (Pre-Beta) Version: 23.0a2 (2013-06-02)
* Opera Next (Beta) Version: 15.0.1147.24
* Maxthon (Release) Version: 4.0.6.2000
* Avant (Release) Version: 2013 build 107


My system specs:

* Foxconn M61PMV
* AMD Athlon II x2 240
* Zotac nVidia GeForce GT210
* 3GB DDR2 RAM

How does a speed test differentiate from browser A to browser B? I mean a browser isn't going to make your download and upload rate any different.

Across browsers I have constant noticeable results, Especially with the ping. Easily reproducible on my end.
I figured I might as well put it in, It doesn't hurt anything, and especially with the ping in Aurora and IE10 it shows an interesting anomaly.
