    I still use the Internet Explorer 5.5. I have K-Meleon 1.5 and I like Firefox 2.0.0.17 (because I'm not using XP I can not use Firefox 3.) I'm impressed with Opera 9.6. The Netscape Communicator 4.51 simply crashes.

    Default Opera 9.61

    I know Firefox is a very good browser. But currently it has two unpatched secerity issues. (But then I should talk runing Windows 98SE.)

    Opera 9.61 as of today has no unpatched security issues. http://secunia.com/advisories/product/10615


    Why not download Opera and give it a try. http://www.opera.com/download/

    Very true...If I recall I have a ramble on this subject somewhere...

    As for Opera - I did try it when 9.6 first came out (and Im writing this with 9.61 now )

    I quite like it - very snappy (although another browser is slightly faster imho. It's name starts with the 3rd letter of the alphabet and it's source project is an element in the periodic table - get the drift? )

    Shame there's only about 14 definitions - maybe the community could help? Although, we do not want the forums to look like giant intellitxt ads!

    I heard Opera 10 alpha owned everyone else >_<. A perfect score.

    And Apple Safari 4 seems to be a rumor, maybe in private testing.

    Default Chrome gets a near perfect score!

    Yeah

    Safari 4 is all 'hush hush' at the moment

    Anyway, I read that Chrome was now using a more recent version of Webkit (currently only in the Dev weekly builds) which should technically boost it's score too 100/100. To see, I downloaded the latest version 2.0.158.0 et voila, a near perfect score! 100/100 but, LINKTEST FAILED.

    The weekly Dev builds are buggy - I mean, really buggy. So take care!

    Weird.
    You can try to click on A letter in Acid3 text. It should show the more detailed test.
    Is Google Chrome finally "privacy-implication" free?
    N/A.

    Thanks honda12 for the feedback.

    Yes, Chrome 2 is a good leap, but it's very unstable. Was it in alpha?

    Yeah, very* 'alpha' with excessive use of 'rough implementation' ect ect

    *or should I say a 'true alpha'. These days everything has a beta label strapped across its glossy web 2.0 lowercase logo.

    V2 does add much missed autoscroll (which came bundled with the new version of Webkit). If you can cope with sites not rendering properly, half your titlebar being cut off the screen, crashes every 15 mins, your browser history ending up on Google's intranet, and hallucinations of pink elephants - give Chrome v2 a go! If you can look past those minor niggles, and just think of one word - FAST, you'll be fine
