After yesterdays Adrian Kingsley benchmark test (Firefox 3.0 Beta 5 vs. Safari 3.1 on Mac OS X), I’ve decided to add Opera 9.5 Beta and run them on Windows machine.
Used latest browsers builds (nightly or weekly, all released on April 8th. So how were the results? They’ve actually shocked me a bit, so here you go:
Its a new month again and we already have March browsers market share results. So let’s begin. Shall we?

The following article covers the latest beta versions of most popular web browsers (Internet Explorer (IE), Firefox, Safari and Opera (also got a few words about Flock as well)), their recently introduced features and improvements.

While Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 2 don’t pass Acid2 test and only their future versions will do that (Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3), the Acid3 test is already released.
