Browser Comparisons: Rendering Table

Mac Daniel's Advice

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.

A lot of pages on the Web are created as tables - that's the old fashioned way and the way we still do things at Low End Mac. Opera 6.03 for Linux is fastest here, followed by the Windows version. Opera 8.0 is the fastest OS X browser and holds 7th place, and Safari 1.2 rates 10th. OS X browsers generally lag well behind Windows browsers, so there's real room for improvement here.
