Computerworld: In benchmarks tests, Google's Chrome 6 browser is 17 percent faster than Chrome 5. While it still trails Opera 10.61 and Safari 5 (the No. 1 and No. 2 browsers, respectively), Chrome's performance now rivals the speed leaders, and on some tests, the three nearly tied.
Chrome 6 tested 2.5 times faster than Firefox and between 5 and 12 times as fast as Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8.
