eWeek has an article about all of the new enhancements for Firefox 4, and of course you can download it and test it. For those of you who found version 3 a little sluggish, they say:
Performance enhancements rev up start-up time, page-loading and accelerate Web application and games. Mozilla's Kraken performance benchmark shows it to be more than three times faster than the current Firefox 3.6.13 build.
I did my best to test it against Opera 11, but didn't seem like it was any faster, although it is faster then Firefox version 3 browsers I've been using. Of course, the Beta doesn't work with most of my plugins or extensions, so it's running pretty lean.
Chrome seems to be the fastest, except for K-Meleon, but K-Meleon, is a very light-weight browser.
Still... I'm not sure what it is, but there is something I don't like about Chrome... just can't put my finger on it....
