Chrome Broswer vs IE on speedtest.net

Well since i used canadian broadband and the reason for the speedtest was because of pings... was wondering if anyone has any insight to this.

I was using Chrome and my pings were in the highs 40-50ms's on speedtest.net initial ping

than i tried IE 9 and my pings were 19-20ms.

I don't know what number to really go by lol. anyone else notice that?

My results are very similar regardless of the browser being used.

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......

No real difference for me either.

I got an identical 15 ms. with both Chrome and Firefox tested twice. And a ridiculous 5 ms. tested twice with IE9. That result is nonsense. That's over WiFi. I wonder if Speedtest.net is "altering" their ping times in a deal with Microsoft. More likely just a Java error of some kind in IE9. Who knows?

If I use the Rogers test page, I get 34 ms. with Firefox and 11 ms. with IE9.

Weird.

Oh man. Can you just use the ping command for latency? There's no need for speedtest for something as fundamental as ping. It's
Flash. Shouldn't expect much consistency...
