In developing a browser based app that’s supported in all major browsers, we often get asked “Which is the best web browser?”.

Browsers Tested

Google Chrome 23 Mozilla Firefox 16 Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 Opera 12 Apple Safari 5
Google Chrome 23 Mozilla Firefox 16 Internet Explorer 10 Internet Explorer 9 Opera 12 Apple Safari 5

The Tests

13 different tests were performed on each browser, covering four key areas in Speed, Memory Usage, Compliance with standards, and Javascript Performance.

The results revealed some varied and rather interesting findings – We even found to our surprise that Internet Explorer 9 out performed Internet Explorer 10 in two of the tests!
