Web Browsers compatibility test

May 17th, 2009

Brand new Internet Explorer 8 scored…. 20 out of 100 points. BLEH
Google Chrome 2 (beta) scored 98 out of 100. Fastest browser too
Flock2 scored 71 out of 100. But hey, it is the best browser with Web 2.0 integration
Firefox 3.5 Beta 4 scored 93 out of 100. Not bad at all. Could be faster tho.
Apple Safari 3.1.2 scored 75 out of 100. Decent quality and almost as fast as Chrome 2

Blogged with the Flock Browser
