    I also ask to why you didn’t included Opera in this competition. Based on my tests for Opera 12.12, Chrome 24, Firefox 18.0.1 Opera is #1 in PeaceKeeper while it’s the 2nd in SunSpider.

      Hi Hasan
      Frankly, I haven’t seen people prefering Opera much on the desktop, so found it would be cool to ignore it :D. Never mind, I will definitely include Opera with the next set of benchmarks.

    I noticed that you wrote Explorer instead of Internet Explorer at some places. It’s a big difference, remember that. ;)

    I feel IE 10 and 9 are only middle of the road because of lack of Extensions.Tracking protection is a joke when deleting adds. it still leaves text adds and delets some offside images and sites look like half loaded pages. AddBlock is best. I actually Think overall Firefox 18 is faster than Chrome 24 and IE10. I just love how fast images load in Firefox and the way it reloads a page is still faster than Chrome 24.
