"Last week we showed Opera 10.60 to be the world's fastest Web browser. That was in the Windows world. But where do Chrome, Firefox, and Opera stand in Linux? Today we find out. Adding the Win 7 results, we'll also learn which OS has the speediest browser.

"Alright folks. Today we have a special treat for you. The last two Web Browser Grand Prix stories received tons of reader-based feedback. But the comments in the first article resounded one question more loudly than the others: what about browser performance in Linux?

"Ah, that's a good one.

"Hot on the heels of Web Browser Grand Prix 2, we bring you The Linux Circuit. Using the exact same test system that we employed last time, we installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) and the three major cross-platform Web browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera. Not only will be be declaring a winning Linux-based browser, but we'll also be comparing the results to those generated under Windows 7. Because the top three performers in Windows 7 happen to be Opera, Chrome, and Firefox, we can declare a winner that spans both platforms as well."
