It seems that everyone is testing web browsers this week.
While some sites are posting usual SunSpider results, Codexon has decided to run something closer to the “real life situations”.
As a result, he loaded 10 web sites and calculated load time.

PC Games Hardware tested the speed of the internet browsers Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8, Mozilla Firefox 2.0, 3.0.11 and 3.5b99, Opera 9.6 and 10, Safari 3.1.1 and 4.0, Chrome 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 with the benchmarks Peacekeeper and Sunspider and checked them with the Acid tests as well.
Sam Allen from DotNetPerls.com has tested the most recent web browser versions to find out, which one of them consumes the most and least memory.
Usign script help, he has loaded 150 the most popular sites as per Alexa.com and monitored results.

It’s that time of the month again: web browser performance and benchmark results. This time it’s going to be a little bit different. The graph you are about to see is from Peacekeeper benchmark site and as James Gallagher explained to us: this chart is made from averaging results from thousands of PC with the three CPUs listed.

The latest Chrome version 220.127.116.11 and Safari 4.0 has fixed one of the vulnerabilities which was exploited in WebKit earlier this month.
As H Online describes: A vulnerability in WebKit can be exploited by an attacker to crash a tab or execute arbitrary code in Google Chrome due to a memory corruption issue in WebKit’s handling of recursion in certain DOM event handlers. For an attack to be successful, a victim must first visit a maliciously crafted website. The malicious code, however, will be sandboxed, limiting the damage that an attacker can do when exploiting the vulnerability.

Adobe Browserlab is a Flash cloud based application that competes with Microsoft SuperPreview. Basically, it allows you to test your web site and see how well it works on most popular web browsers. At first, you will have to sign up for the preview (registrations are closed at this moment). Once signed in, you will be able to choose browsers, operating systems to test and see them side-by-side.
Of course, you can always BrowserShots.org if screenshot is more than enough.
