No internet plugin


Well, what do you think? No internet plugin, no internet. ๐Ÿ˜„

Besides being a browser for dummies, Safari is at least a fast browser for dummies:

Midori 0.1.7
ArchLinux, Virtualbox 2.2
712\.0ms +/- 2.0%
Safari 4.0.2
Windows 7, VirtualBox 2.2
767\.0ms +/- 1.3%
Chromium 3.0.19
Windows XP SP3, VirtualBox 2.2
985\.4ms +/- 1.9%
Opera 10.00b2
Windows 7, VirtualBox 2.2
3489\.2ms +/- 3.0%
Firefox 3.5
ArchLinux, VirtualBox 2.2
4153\.2ms +/- 1.7%

Concerning Javascript, webkit rulez da world (not only in this benchmark). In this respect, Opera and Mozilla have just nothing to offer anymore. ๐Ÿ˜ž Of course, Firefox is still the better browser compared to Midori, and Opera compared to Safari (and to Firefox ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). And every security-conscious person has Javascript off by default anyway, using Noscript for Firefox, or the site specific rules in Opera.

Of course. Yet, the web of the future will rely heavily on Javascript, and browsers not mastering this discipline will eventually be superseded. Mark my words.
