    Smile Chrome buries Windows rivals in browser drag race.

    Greetz.

    Came across this and thought i'd share it. **Opera fanboy's, i guess it's time to start eating your hats..

    Google's new Chrome 3.0 is the fastest of the top five Windows browsers, and beats every rival, including Apple's Safari, by comfortable margins, benchmark tests show.
    Both Chrome and Safari use the open-source WebKit browser engine.
    According to tests run by Computerworld, Chrome 3.0, which Google launched last week, is the fastest production version of the top five Windows browsers. Chrome renders JavaScript more than nine times faster than Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 (IE8), is over five times faster than Opera Software's Opera 10, two-and-a-half times faster than Firefox 3.5 and 30% faster than Safari 4.0.

    Only problem is that Chrome lags behind all others in the normal features that people have come to expect from a browser. Really a shame because chrome is quite nice, just kind of lacking in the areas that other more mature browsers aren't.

    it really has no features to speak of. I finally downloaded it. It's fast opening and loading pages, but I didn't even find any groups feature, or the ability to open all the bookmarks in a particular folder. No mouse gestures, toolbar isn't all that customizable.
