Last month, Apple.com posted the fastest response time in Internet Explorer tests with an average load time of 0.86 seconds and the fastest Firefox load time, also with an average of 0.78 seconds.

Dell.com finished in second place for Internet Explorer tests at 1.31 seconds, followed by OfficeDepot.com (1.53), HPShopping.com (1.55) and Macys.com (1.67).

LLBean.com finished second last month’s Firefox response time tests with an average of 0.88 seconds. Dell.com (1.00) came in third and Overstock.com (1.09) came in fourth, followed by OfficeDepot.com came in fifth (1.39).
