You know, I really disagree with this:
"The top speed you will find, in the current crop of browsers, belongs to Google Chrome. If you???ve grown accustomed to Internet Explorer or Firefox, you???ll notice a dramatic increase in rendering time using Google Chrome."
Especially the part about "dramatic." I am a longtime Firefox and IE user, but I also have Chrome installed as a backup, and I have never observed a noticeable speed improvement (none at all, for that matter) using Chrome. In any case, I keep hearing people reporting that Chrome is just so much faster. When I read your quote above, I immediately launched the latest version of Chrome and went to CNN.com, at the same time doing so on Firefox. You know what? No difference. In fact, Firefox seemed to me to load the site faster. It only further supports my opinion that this talk of dramatic Chrome speed is nothing more than misinformation and or over exaggeration which cascades down the tech news channels.
"Google Chrome also helps speed things up by allowing you to enter search strings in the URL address bar."
You can do the same thing on IE and Firefox. For years now.
