There are regular debates between Chrome, Safari, and Firefox re: which is “fastest” (typically @ loading pages), but I was wondering what factors go into making a browser “fast”? I “built” a web browser app in Xcode a while back that uses the WebKit rendering engine: it’s literally just the webkit engine with a few buttons on top. It’s the most barebones of all browsers, and things like the rich version of Gmail are not supported on it. However, if I’m wanting to look up a website in a pinch (i.e., go from completely not running to doing a google search or going to a specific site in 10 seconds), it’s my go-to. What factors go into making a browser “fast” and how do you maintain a speed that is pretty comparable to this barebones browser while also adding in a few “normal” modern features?
