Dell.com finished in second place in Firefox tests at 1.10 seconds, followed by Overstock.com (1.16), Apple.com (1.27) and OfficeMax.com (1.42).

Dell.com also finished second in last month’s Internet Explorer response time tests with an average of 1.34 seconds. Costco.com (1.38) was third, followed by OfficeMax.com (1.41) and Macys.com (1.55).
