Everyone's running speed tests to see how Google's new Chrome browser measures up.Google during its launch event tested Chrome against Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and found that Chrome (77.28 milliseconds) was about three times faster loading local static page files than IE (220.64 milliseconds).
I used WebWait.com to test how quickly Chrome 0.2, Firefox 3, Safari 3.1, and Internet Explorer 7 loaded the InformationWeek.com home page. The results for three page loads averaged were: Firefox (5.21s) Safari (6.34s), Chrome (6.48s), Internet Explorer (8.90s).

As always with such statistics, your mileage may vary. The real test is whether Chrome meets your needs and whether you enjoy using it more than other browsers. Personally, I'm going to stick with Firefox, at least until Chrome plug-ins start appearing.
