Browser Comparisons: Rendering CSS

Dan Knight , 2005.02.14

The charts below are adapted from Browser Speed Comparisons. "Supplementary" browsers are not shown, and colors are used to differentiate operating systems. Color code:

  • Mac OS X: red
  • Mac OS 9: green
  • Linux: yellow
  • Windows XP: blue

On each of these graphs, the shorter bar represents faster performance.

When it comes to displaying a page that uses Cascading Style Sheets, top honors go to Safari 2.0 for Mac OS X 10.4 (based on the current prerelease version). The next-fastest OS X browser in this test is Safari 1.2, which takes 12th place. As Safari 2.0 demonstrates, there's lots of potential to improve speed on the other Mac browsers.
