5 Mac Browsers, Racing To Be The Fastest

June sure is shaping up to be a good month to be a Mac web geek! Every few days there is a new browser being released and they are all the fastest browser on the net.

Fast Mac Browsers

Apple just introduced Safari 4. It has ‘remarkable’ new features as is the world’s fastest web browser according to Apple.

Firefox 3.5 will be here soon, and it’s shaping up to be by far the fastest Firefox yet: more than twice as fast as Firefox 3 and 10 times as fast as Firefox 2. That’s some serious speed.

Opera 10 Beta sports a surprising array of new features, a fresh look and feel, and enhanced speed and performance.

Google Chrome (alpha) is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. Not yet perfected on the Mac, but fun to play with none the less.

Camino 2.0 Beta is out too. No talk about speed enhancements, but I’m sure that’s implied.

As you can see, we not only have upgraded browsers coming out all across the board, but they are also all faster.

So which one is fastest? Well that’s up to speculation. I think each machine is different and speed tests are not very accurate. Try them all and see what you think. Then let us know below what you think is the fastest Mac browser.

    i think Safari is the fastest. Firefox has nice addons but the browser can be buggy sometimes.

    cruz is the fastest ive used. ive benchmarked them and safari and cruz tied, then chrome, then ff 3.5.

    you should look into cruz cause it smoked about everything and then maybe add it to your list. it is still beta though

    You should try Roccat Browser, it’s fairly new but really fast and quite featuresome IMHO.

    I really just like Walmart or Target. There have been no real advances in browsing technology.
    I am frankly very tired of all this Horse****!
