According to the latest data from web application performance management firm New Relic, Microsoft's Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 8 currently has the fastest response time of any browser on Windows, leading the company "and Microsoft" to conclude that IE10 is currently the fastest browser on Windows.

'Faster' doesn't necessarily mean 'better'.
I'm not surprised that IE runs fastest on Windows - I'm sure under the hood many of the elements that the browser needs is already loaded as part of the OS, and as a result, will naturally run faster than 3rd party software.

I am using IE 10 on Windows 7, and I have never seen anything like it. Super fast. In fact I wonder how it will affect my sites cos, it is so fast it may well improve page views (though it is the same for every site I visit).
It is like someone at my ISP has just doubled or tripled my bandwidth! Seriously, I am not exaggerating.
