    The comments after the article seem to suggest that the test is flawed for two reasons:
    • Download speed, not rendering speed, is what's being tested
    • The pages in question serve radically different HTML to the browsers tested, so those pages are NOT good test candidates.

    1. google is generally better test site cause it use large amount of javascript, client end, so it relies less on connection speed. but of course, I don't think one test can judge the whole thing anyway.

    2. 3 browsers were obviously operated in same network conditions, Im not sure if the connection speed would make much difference

    3. Im glad ppl trying to analyze the testing process, I would only HOPE the guy who so thoroughly analyzed wired's test also did some analysis of apple'e test, maybe their test have many problems too?
