Here’s why:

Guys at ZDNET did some benchmarking tests on how the newly released Safari browser is doing in the “SPEED” category when it comes to browsers.

They’ve used the SunSpider suite of Javascript tests to determine the fastest browser on both PC and Mac. Test browsers include Chrome, Firefox 3, Opera 9.6 and even Mozilla’s developmental Minefield browser.
