The test results below indicate diggZ-Et enabled / disabled.
20 Seconds / 2 Seconds – Opera 9.27
3 Seconds / 3 Seconds – Firefox 2.0
3 Seconds / 2 Seconds – Firefox 3.0 RC
8 Seconds / 4 Seconds – Explorer 6.0
6 Seconds / 5 Seconds – Explorer 7.0
8 Seconds / 5 Seconds – Explorer 8.0 (Beta)
5 Seconds / 3 Seconds – Safari 3.0.4 (Win Beta)
3 Seconds / 2 Seconds – Opera 9.5
As you can see diggZ-Et performs best when using Firefox 3.0. Opera takes the cake for the slowest speed when diggZ-Et is enabled but my blog still loads the slowest in IE 7 and 8 with the plugin being disabled. I would also like to note that all these tests were done on a 1.5 broadband connection.
