"Both Opera and Google are obsessed with the speed of their browser. With each release, each claim to be the fastest browser. Google has even gone on to make a game to demonstrate the speed of its browser Chrome. With today's release of Opera 10.60, Opera is now claiming that it is the fastest browser on earth. So, we decided to see if it is indeed the fastest browser or if it is Google Chrome. We also decided to throw in the latest dev build of Chromium and Firefox 4.0 beta to the test.

"So here is the list of the browsers we are going to be testing:

* Opera 10.60
* Google Chrome 5.0.375.86
* Chromium 6.0.452.0
* Firefox 4.0 beta

"We are going to put these browsers through the SunSpider JavaScript Benchmark and the V8 Benchmark Suite."
