The Browser Wars Continue, Sort Of

"As you can see, each browser has its strengths—even the most maligned browser in recent history. We took each of the five all-browser tests—start-up times, nine-tab loading, JavaScript, DOM/CSS, and memory use—and assigned a ranking to each contender. In the case of very close results, we assigned a "tie." In two cases—Internet Explorer on JavaScript and CSS, Safari on nine-tab loading—we had to assign zeros, though, obviously, each browser can perform those functions, but that's how it goes."

Does the speed of the browser really affect your choice? I mean, sure, if there is a significant difference like those measured in minutes, or even tens of seconds, but for most browsing, I have found most have a particular preference, logical or not. I would think that for browsers, the competition would be more for features than in speed. The tests seems reasonable and somewhat based on real world performance, though I have heard claims were some people load up hundreds of tabs for a single browser. I wonder what the performance metrics would be on that kind of scenario.
