Is Google Chrome that fast? Video and Poll: What is your favorite web browser?

Ok, if you have not seen the Google Chrome video you have to watch it just for the geek in you. Forget the speed test part but the creative energy behind the video is just awesome. Take a look:

From the YouTube video description:

These speed tests were filmed at actual web page rendering times. If you’re interested in the technical details, read on!
Equipment used:
– Computer: MacBook Pro laptop with Windows installed
– Monitor – 24″ Asus: We had to replace the standard fluorescent backlight with very large tungsten fixtures to funnel in more light to capture the screen. In addition, we flipped the monitor 180 degrees to eliminate a shadow from the driver board and set the system preferences on the computer to rotate 180 degrees. No special software was used in this process.
– 15Mbps Internet connection.
– Camera: Phantom v640 High Speed Camera at 1920 x 1080, films up to 2700 fps

Earlier this year I switched to Google Chrome on my Mac but then I switched back Safari. What is your favorite web browser? Take the poll below.
