“If you want the fastest browser then the browser you should be using on your Mac is Safari,” Adrian Kingsley-Hughes writes for ZDNet. “It won two of the benchmark speed tests, while Chrome only won the one. Pretty clear win for Safari.”
“If you want the browser displaying the best standards compliance, then go with Chrome since it was the winner in the HTML5 test,” Kingsley-Hughes writes. “Moving from the artificial world of benchmarks into the real world, I have to be honest and say I can’t feel much of a speed difference no matter which browser I use. Even running something like Internet Explorer or Edge through on a virtual machine on the Mac doesn’t feel all that bad to be honest.
“No matter which browser you use, they’re all pretty darn fast,” Kingsley-Hughes writes. “But if you want to be running the fastest browser on your Mac, run Safari.”
