    The May issue of Laptop magazine has a brief article entitled "Does firefox still matter?". Their "lab" compared the performance of the three leading browsers using three tests:

    Sunspider JavaScript
    Peacekeeper Benchmark
    Open Rates

    IE9 easily bested the others on all three benchmarks. I believe chrome came in 2nd on two, and firefox on one -hence the title of the article.

    The magazine usually drivels on apple stuff, but it did not include safari in the test -or it did not report on it.

    I consulted the issue at my local B&N bookstore; unfortunately, I did not find the article online.

    I used to be a Firefox man but switched to IE9 when it was released. Pinning sites is awesome and the speed is great.

    I use a combination fo IE9 and Opera. I stared Opera when I tried to learn HTML5 as I think at the time it had better support. I'll have to look into that again.

    If IE9 would add a "paste and search" function it would add some missing functionality that currently Chrome implements much better. Other than that IE9 is faster and renders pages in a more aesthetically pleasing way.

    I tried FF, then went back to IE9. I've been using chrome for the past 2 months, but going back to IE9 again. The features in FF & Chrome are great, but it's more annoying to have to open IE whenever a site doesn't work well. I ain't just talking about MS sites either. There's a reason why the other browsers needs an IE extension. So id rather just stick to IE, because every site works with it.

    simple-adblock works just as good as adbluck plus, but it's $30 for pro.
