I take browser benchmarks with a grain of salt these days. I use Opera, Firefox, Chrome and IE. I've seen all of them beat the others depending on what's being loaded. The most important measurement of speed I have as a web admin is that they all load quickly on my sites. If any of them do not, I track the reason why (even IE has build-in developer tools) and try to address it.
What I use elsewhere is most often Opera, for usability reasons.
