    Not a scientific test by any means,but i decided to test download speeds on my laptop using my two favorite browsers and was surprised by the difference.Both browsers are up to date and using the Speedtest site and selecting the same server location,i found over five tests each Firefox brought in an average of 40.72 Mbps compared to Chromium which brought in an average of 83.38 Mbps.

    Why is there such a difference of speed between these two browsers ?.

    I decided to conduct tests as i watch a lot of streaming sports via my browser and have been suffering a lot of buffering recently so wanted to check my download speeds to see if it is the sites i view or if my lan connection was the problem.
