The review, which focuses mostly on performance metrics and test results, is in Spanish. An automated Google translation is available.

It's all in the set of tests you do... If you run both browsers on my tests, for example, we do better (largely because there were bugs filed and fixed for almost all those tests).

For all practical purposes, the two browsers have very close support of CSS2.
