Costco.com finished in second place in Internet Explorer tests at 0.73 seconds, followed by Amway.com (1.06), Dell.com (1.45) and Walmart.com (1.54).

Apple.com finished second in last month’s Firefox response time tests with an average of 0.54 seconds. Dell.com (0.78) came in third, followed by Amway.com (0.93) and LLBean.com (0.96).

The average large retailer’s high broadband response time for a shopper using Internet Explorer in June was 2.54 seconds, the Compuware study shows. The average Firefox response time among the same group of 23 retailers was 1.84 seconds.
