[QUOTE=Anton P. Enus;2581366]I’m talking about using the same system setup to test both browsers, all things being equal, IE9 is the fastest browser out there. Don’t take my word for it, you can read just about everywhere else and they come to the same conclusion. Even MS haters are having trouble criticizing IE9.[/QUOTE]
Not all system Rigs are equal in their setups and not everyone here has the same Rig or setup as you as well. So to Generalize everything as working as yours is also problematic as well as those articles don’t reflect the vast majority of different hardware and setups that aren’t taken into account when making such claims. As you didn’t see I said is relative to the browser and system setups. There hasn’t been any kinda of official independent testing to verify any claims made beyond one speculations. Not til there is a real independent test outside of any influences from either camps this debt is just a mute point. Fact remains some site are programmed to run better with IE and some with either browser that most would agree to. As some feature would show up in IE but not FF and some site load correctly in one but not in another. That is just the nature of programming you program to run better with one or both browsers so there are trade-off when you do so.
