Safari 5: Download Now – Faster than Chrome and Firefox?

We have some great news for regular users of Safari now, as just as expected prior to the event, Apple has announced the release of Safari 5. And guess what? It is meant to be quicker than both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

It seems as if Apple didn’t have any space for Safari 5 during yesterday’s WWDC 2010 briefing, unless they are planning a proper reveal during the week.

Nevertheless, moments after Steve Jobs’ keynote at the event, the download link for Safari 5 became available on Apple’s website. The new version is thought to pack a 30% increase in performance over Safari 4, while there is also brand new features such as Safari Reader, Microsoft Bing Search and Extensions – which is similar to Firefox add-ons.

Here is the interesting part though. Apple is claiming that Safari 5 runs JavaScript twice as fast as Firefox version 3.6, and a mighty three percent faster than Chrome 5.0.

Do you believe that? Head to Engadget here for full details and the download link.
