Opera’s World Record Speed Test Video Mocks Google Chrome

Remember the uber-cool speed test video created by the Chrome team? If you don’t, check it out (embedded below). Right now!

Google benchmarked their browser against lightning, sound and even potatoes. Unfortunately for Chrome, and fortunately for us, the folks at Opera got inspired by Chrome’s awesome speed tests and decided conduct one of their own.

The Norwegian comedy duo of Odd and Even Johansen were tasked with finding out if Opera was faster than boiling a potato. The result is pure comic gold. Here is the brilliant parody by Opera.

There is nothing subtle about the above video, but its always fun to watch rival companies taking a dig at each other. Google, now its your turn.

    Opera is quite good, but it lack extensions, like ADblock. So I stay with Chrome. Back to topic, nice try Opera but not very funny, try something more original next time.
