On the other hand, if you want to understand the six test, well.. it gets a bit technical. The first test «rendering» is a test of how fast the browser can draw stuff to the screen, while doing other calculations and operations at the same time. The second test which Futuremark calls «social networking» is actually a test in how fast the browser can create a SHA1 hash, parse some XML and filtering and sorting the elements of an array. Thirdly we arrive at the «complex graphics» test, which is a test on canvas drawing operations, canvas being part of the new HTML 5 standard. The «data» test which I have renamed to "arrays" does work on exactly that, array manipulation. The «DOM manipulation» test, is one of the most important tests as this tests the browsers ability to look up elements in the DOM fast. This should be of particular interest to jQuery fans. The last test «text parsing», is what its name suggests, parsing and searching in strings. To get a full detailed explanation of what the individual test entails, see Futuremarks FAQ site.
My testcomputer was an iMac 3.06 GHz, with 8GB of RAM and an ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics card running OS X 10.6.7. It matters, because these tests will very, much, depending on your computer and OS.
So, judging from this Google Chrome is the browser your should go for. And in my opinion, it is. For me, I'm sticking with Safari for my day to day use, but I'm using Chrome when writing this blog post.
