Safari: The Fastest Browser?

It seems that the "product war" between Apple and Microsoft will still continue. After launching their newest operating system: Mac OS X Leopard, Apple now claimed that their latest web browser: Safari is the fastest web browser today. On their official website, you will see there are three categories which are included as comparison tools.
Html performance:
The fastest web browser on any platform, Safari loads pages up to 2 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2.

Javascript performance:
And it executes JavaScript up to 2.8 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2.

Application launch:
You guessed it right, Safari still leads with time needed to load is only 1.74s, Opera comes in second, while Mozilla and Internet Explorer in third and fourth respectively.
What does all that mean for you? Less time loading pages and more time enjoying them.

Wow, it is indeed a really bold claim. But I am sure they won't go telling the whole world about it, if it is a lie. I have just used Safari for a few days now and from what I can tell it is really quicker than Mozilla. They will have to continue to develop it though as there are maybe only a few add-ons that can be installed with it. Unlike his rival Mozilla which has a lot of add-ons that you can install according to your needs and preferences. Aside from all of that, I think that Internet Explorer and Mozilla has a new rival that can really beat them as the "fastest web browser".
