Best Mac Browser - Chrome 6.0.472.63 Results

Google's Chrome browser aced not only its own V8 JavaScript test, but all of the tests we threw at it.

Chrome aced all of the tests we threw at it, and captured some of the top marks in many of the test categories. Chrome’s speed is the result of Google’s concentration on the browser’s JavaScript engine, which is used heavily, both in our benchmarks and by most modern-day browsers.

The other secret to Chrome’s speed is the use of the latest version of the WebKit engine. Unlike some browser developers, Google tries to integrate the latest WebKit improvements into Chrome on a regular basis.
