According to the recent report by Strangeloop, a company that specializes in website performance, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer was 8% faster in loading the majority of web pages when compares to the Google’s Chrome.
As stated in the document, IE10 average load time was 6.392 seconds, beating Firefox (6.395 seconds) and Google Chrome 20 (6.906).
Interestingly enough, overall pages loading performance was 9% slower when compared to the previous year’s report, which is blamed on heavier and heavier web sites.
Obviously, Microsoft was pretty happy with the results and issued the following statement:
We are thrilled Strangeloop Networks’ recent report validates IE10 delivers the best real world site performance, surpassing all other modern browsers. Real world performance is the most important factor in evaluating browsers and something that has been a focus for the IE team forsome time. Measuring browser speed only with milliseconds in web micro-benchmarks is simply not a good indicator of the performance a user will experience when they browse the web. Many factors matter, including page load time of real world sites, which is why we are excited that IE10 delivers the fastest web experience for the world’s most popular sites according to Strangeloop Networks.
