    I'm curious if anyone has Mavericks installed on a Base model MacBook Air 2013, What Score do you get in Browsermark 2.0? I'm currently getting 4470 with Lion and it's very fast for a base Air, compared to my other computers I'm curious if Apple's performance promises in Safari are holding up in Mavericks. Thanks in advance.

    Don't have an MBA '13, but Safari 7 is definitely swifter and more responsive, no matter what those benchmarks tell you.

    In addition to WebKit/JS performance gain, I think the new process-per-tab model and the hardware-accelerated scrolling in Mavericks contribute even more to the experience. Real world usage is just fantastic.

    tl;dr: Snappier.

    Mine is MacBook air 2013, 11 inch, when I browse and scroll websites, the performance of safari 7 is amazing! It's very fast! Even if I do some gestures, like doing zoom in or zoom out, it's still no any lag.

    You just made my day. That's a huge increase in performance. Finally safari is really a force in the browser world. wow. My i7 2600k, 16GB, 512GB SSD desktop gets the same score you got using chrome or firefox. I'm really excited for mavericks. I can only imagine how fast a new Mac Pro would be... :)

    I don't have any idea what that score I got mean comparing to the others but in everyday usage it is pretty fast trust me. Just for that reason I don't want to go back to ML (and I don't want to use any other browser)

    I ran the test once more with extensions disabled (adblock and clicktoflash) and got a bit higher this time;
