Published at LXer:

With Internet Explorer 9 being acclaimed as the fastest ever browser client from Microsoft, DaniWeb decided to put it to the test against Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari and see just how quick it really is in a real world test of web browsing speed.

Why even test IE9 and Safari? Neither of them work with Linux, and Opera isn't open source. So why bother? This article doesn't belong on LQ.

It is technology related, and I've posted many news threads that doesn't have anything to do with Linux, whats your point?

Also this news post is about comparing browsers, not what browsers are available only under Linux.

I completely agree.
