No issues with it at all – Julian G4ILO pointed out that perhaps its page loading that we should be looking at so I conducted a test this morning using
Firefox 4 - Opera - Google Chrome
I actually ran the test twice over and averaged out the final totals – sites visited included PC4T, G4ILO, G4NKX, BBC NEWS, LINUX DISTROWATCH, UBUNTU, SONY UK, OPEN SUSE, STAPLES, FEDORA PROJECT…… plus a good few other popularly visited ham sites.
Final Average times for loading pages
1. Opera 5.61s
2. Firefox 4 5.76s
3. Chrome 6.00s
All browsers performed well in my book, speed wise (Nothing in it at all) so it’s just down to personal preference, having used all three this morning I have developed more affinity to Firefox although it’s different to the old version, and I like the look and feel of it (Must check to see if it’s available for Linux yet).
Obviously page loading times will vary from one machine to another depending on the installed hardware – this is a bog standard Intel 3.4 dual core, running a 250Gb HDD and 2Mb ram and W7
I’ll be sticking with FF4 but would’nt hesitate in using the others.
