Chrome vs ?????

I have been using Googles Chrome since it was in beta, and in general have been very satisfied with it’s performance.  Coming from the browser route of Lynx -> Netscape -> Firefox there has never been a time when apart from in the office I have ever really used Internet Explorer, often finding when I have used it that it was slow and buggy.  Well those marketing types at Google have come up with a novel way of displaying the speed of Chrome, some how I think they may have been watching too much Mythbusters.

Equipment used:
  • Computer: MacBook Pro laptop with Windows installed
  • Monitor – 24? Asus: We had to replace the standard fluorescent backlight with very large tungsten fixtures to funnel in more light to capture the screen. In addition, we flipped the monitor 180 degrees to eliminate a shadow from the driver board and set the system preferences on the computer to rotate 180 degrees. No special software was used in this process.
  • 15Mbps Internet connection.
  • Camera: Phantom v640 High Speed Camera at 1920 x 1080, films up to 2700 fps
