Not so fast Safari; at least according to Wired

Think Safari is faster than IE and Firefox, we'd heard the hype too. According to Wired however, there may be little truth to that widespread perception. In tests performed at the "wired labs" -- which we imagine as the cubicle of some geek with a nerf gun -- Safari is several seconds slower loading common AJAX based pages like Google Calendar and GMail.

The cult of Steve may drink the Kool-Aid but, we're not fully buying it yet. With security holes, quirky interface bugs and now some data that suggests we'll lose valuable seconds off our lives waiting for new email, we're wondering what all the hype is about.
