Newegg.com (0.92 seconds) had the second-best consistency score in Internet Explorer tests, followed by Overstock.com and Dell.com (tied at 0.93), and Costco.com (1.03).
In Firefox testing, Apple.com followed OfficeMax.com with a consistency score of 0.81 seconds. Overstock.com was next (1.09), followed by OfficeDepot.com (1.25) and Dell.com (1.27).
