At first, the web-browser war was only between Google Chrome and IE8 but now it looks like Firefox has beaten their war drums as well.
Mozilla earlier today lays claim that their upcoming Firefox 3.1 which will be powered by TraceMonkey is much faster than Google Chrome and they have some benchmark test results to back it up.
So what? What is Mozilla compared to Google?
Google has more resources than Mozilla and they can easily release a faster version of Google Chrome that can beat the upcoming Firefox 3.1. Mark my words, Google will not sit tight and do nothing. They will come up with something better in the next few weeks. Mark my words!
Besides, speed is not everything. Users need more than just lightning-quick browsing speed these days. Users actually need intelligent web browsers that can do wonderful things for them (killer apps). At the end of the day, the web browser that gave users extra benefits and functionalities will win the current web-browser war.
Sorry Mozilla, your Firefox 3.1 sounds great but I need more than speed. I’ll stick with Google Chrome for the time being.
