Wired News: Why Do New iMacs Surf So Slowly?

Tests conducted by Wired News confirmed reader complaints that a new 800 MHz iMac takes an average of twice as long to render Web pages as a comparable or cheaper PC running Windows XP.

Macs have always seemed slower at surfing the web than comparable PCs. I'm satisified with the speed of my iBook running Mozilla under OS X. I'm very impressed by the beta version of Chimera Navigator, a native version of Mozilla, which has the best looking web browsing I've seen. I'm looking forward to a final release.
