Different speed of Web browsers!
First of all, the web browser speed is limited by the internet connection speed and the performance of the computer and installed system. If you have a slow internet connection speed and a slow performing computer and/or system, you will most likely not notice any significant difference while surfing the Internet with different browsers.
Another important fact is if your ISP (Internet Service Provider) has technical issues or has bad connections to some internet gateways, the loading time of a website will take longer. But these issues are spread across all web browsers. So if you are testing the speed of a web browser yourself, you should always choose to open the same websites while doing the test with different web browsers!
It is true that there are differences between different web browsers regarding the speed, but the differences are mainly with balancing system memory, tiny algorithms and the order of data loaded.
The differences in the speed are usually just mill. seconds!
|Opening gooogle.com with Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer shows that:||Opening facebook.com with Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer shows that:|
- Chrome needs 0,25 seconds
- Firefox needs 0,23 seconds
- IE needs 0,22 seconds
- Chrome needs 2,10 seconds
- Firefox needs 2,08 seconds
- IE needs 2,09 seconds
Looking at this data brings up the following question: Is the web browser speed difference in milliseconds relevant to a user?
Probably in most of the cases when a web browser is used, the little speed difference is not relevant at all. Looking from a high-end web browser user like a real-time stock trader, serious players of browser based games, bidders at online auctions or users of other real-time online applications, the web browser speed might make a difference!

|- A computer without a firewall and at least one anti-virus scanner is vulnerable to infections! A moderate percentage of performance issues of web browsers are caused by various infections. But as already said, choose your firewall and anti-virus scanner wisely and read through the manual!|

- Before installing a firewall, virus-scanner or any other security application, read through the manual and check related forums. Almost all security applications today have one thing in common; they automatically take control of all related settings if you do not customize them as needed.
There are tons and tons of users that have the wildest issues caused by security applications, including internet connection performance issues! Security is important, but be aware that you need to know your security application well to customize it, as the default settings are mainly blocking everything possible for the sake of safety. Voices, telling developers of security applications to come up with some new technology instead of restricting and blocking almost everything, are getting louder!
