A better benchmark: Benchmarking Browsers with Real Websites

The results will probably vary depending on what sites you choose to test, but the average loading times in this particular test should put to rest the misconception that Opera has somehow fallen behind when it comes to performance.
I don't think Carakan is going to have much of an impact on these more realistic benchmarks. But people will probably continue to quote the flawed JS-only benchmarks in the future, so it will be nice to beat everyone else there too.
