Thanks to Apple sponsoring development, Clang is now the worlds best compiler.

The linked page only measures build time, not the quality of the build (for example, how fast it runs once it's been built). This is hardly a basis for calling it "the worlds [sic] best compiler," though it does look promising.

Edit: It also doesn't say what compiler options were used with either program. There's really nothing at all that can be concluded from this other than that Clang ran faster than GCC for this particular test case.
