Safari - Performance

Apple came out with its new browser Safari 4 Beta and as a performance guys, I found something really interesting. Apple claims "Safari’s Nitro Engine executes JavaScript up to 30 times faster than Internet Explorer 7 and more than 3 times faster than Firefox 3. "

Wow! 

As I said earlier here, most of performance testing tools doesn't have ability to report end user response time and one of the reason being different Javascript engine used by different browser vendor.

As usual, comments are always welcome.
