    Can you show me a link with tests that show that Firefox 3 is faster than Opera 9.5. All of my tests show Opera on top by a long shot.

    Hmm I’ve recently saw a graphic on Lifehacker which showed a comparison of the actual web browsers. There you could see that Firefox 3 was faster than Opera 9.5b – I’m not sure if the performance of the final Opera 9.5 has changed?
    Here’s the link to Lifehacker (scroll down to the first point to see the graphic).

    Cool, when I first commented I found reports where Oprea beat it by quite a bit; however, now when I do a search all I hear about is Firefox this Firefox that.

    This page:

    Shows Opera beating firefox 3 but this was still in the beta.

    I guess I am just an Opera fan boy. :)

    Yeah maybe Firefox is a bit faster than Opera but the difference is minimal. I was using Opera 7 for many years and it’s still a great browser! Version 9 has awesome improvements and I think in a far future, Opera’s market share will grow (especially because it features the great DragonFly development toolkit).
