    The difference is relative small, it is only 18%, so I would not give so much importance.
    Anyway, one should take in consideration the Caches that are always in place.
    The best way to test is using the many Windows built-in information, like the one in Windows Explorer, Performance in Task Manager or even the Ressource Monitor. They are accurate and give the information one need.
    HI there

    Thanks for the info -- 18% could be significant --especially now more and more 4K UHD Video is becoming available -- dread to think what happens when we go to 8K video --today's high speed fibre internet will collapse !! even 1Gib/s might not be sufficient - and with zillions of users !!.

    Netflix and SKY have a few things in 4K - most premier league football (round ball version) is available in 4K now.

    Hi there


    I suspect that perhaps my Firefox is riddled with adware --seems analysing it loads 10 zillion sites plus "adclick" or whatever

    Totally removed.

    Chrome reports similar to IE 11. Now marking as solved.

    Linux Firefox --fine -- same as Windows but Windows FF --totally ridiculous result --from same server within seconds shouldn't have a variation of 18% --Would you use a plane if the reliability varied by 18 % --maybe some would but I think I'd stay on the ground in that situation. !!!!!
