That might depend on the page it has to show (html, Javascript, vbscript, css, images), on the history of the session (the way it uses the browser cache, if it's filled), on the CPU (different handling of threads, phone versus PC) and GPU (using the GPU for vector images) and on the OS (it's imaginable that Safari is relatively faster on a Mac then on a Windows PC)

Once you have your benchmark (pages and hardware) defined, you can go and measure the speed. https://www.google.com/search?q=browser+benchmark tells more and might approximately answer your question.

I tried safari, firefoxs, internet explorer, edge and chrome and I can say all of them have sometimes bugs and slow performance.
But in fact, firefox and chrome are faster than others.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
