Fridrich. That's what the World Record was set in, so that's the fastest(so far.)
I already asked this question. That's what the search function is for. Please use it before you start a thread next time. Another tip: Practice your @$$ off.

The World Record has nothing to do with the “best” method. It is simply the one currently in use by the most accomplished cuber (perhaps that is what your "so far" meant). The fastest theoretical method is the one that solves in the fewest turns (and that isn't Fridrich).

Go read up just a bit more and you'll find out that pure Fridrich = CFOP, Wikipedia will tell you this if all else fails.

And don't quadruple post, there are better ways to up your post count, in a more covert fashion.

And just because the search function sucks doesn't give you an excuse not to use it, yes I do agree that it's not the most powerful search engine in the world, but it does the job, and your job is to go through threads that it churns out, that you think may potentially help you, and read up. Asking questions like that *without a question mark at the end of the thread title* is ANNOYING and MISLEADING. I am SO tempted to click that damn report button.

Well, the fastest method isn't the one that uses the fewest moves. It's the one that use a reasonable amount of moves and less pausing between the moves. Most of cuber's time is wasted looking for pieces if you use a method like Heise, which is one of the methods that is used in fewest moves and isn't great for speedcubing because it require great amount of memory to tracking nearly all pieces.

Well, the report button doesn't support annoying posts or quad posting if you read the description.

I know you meant "isn't". Ok.
So Heise is best..but it is much harder and takes more practice. Full circle eh?
