Dont believe performance tests. Firefox faster than Safari

Apple release the Windows version of thier browser Safari yesterday and the community welcomes them on the Windows platform with a bunch of security bugs found after only two hours of the release. Hard to believe since according to Apple:
"Now you can enjoy worry-free web browsing on any computer. Apple engineers designed Safari to be secure from day one."

My own experience with Safari is really bad. I installed it with no problems but when I started it, I got the browser but cant see any text all. Both all the text in the browser window and in the menus are gone. The File and Edit menus are just empty and the browser cant show text but only images.

Apple also release some performance tests that shows that Safari is the fastest web browser around. Again according to Apple:
"Safari loads pages up to 2 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and up to 1.6 times faster than Firefox 2."

But now has Wired News Benchmarks has shown that Safari 3 is slower than IE 7 and Firefox. And Wired News has some good news:
"The verdict? Firefox may be getting bloated, but it's still the fastest Windows browser, particularly for running Google web applications."
