    Real-World Testing Shows Android's Browser 52% Faster than iPhone's on 84% of Sites


    Some industrious folks over at the web analyst site Blaze, did some serious real-world testing comparing Android's Chrome browser speeds to the iPhone's Safari browser speeds. The results speak for themselves, with the Android browser coming out a whopping 52% faster in 84% of the websites tested! Their testing methodology used 45,000 page loads from real-world websites, not browser benchmark programs which are typically skewed due to 'benchmark optimizations'.

    Here's a quote from them summarizing their test methods:
    The study was done primarily on iPhone 4 and Google Nexus S. The websites used were those of the Fortune 1000 companies. Each page was loaded multiple times and on different days, measured primarily over WiFi. For each device, we used the median load time for the comparison. The total number of tests was over 45,000.

    This study was made possible through custom apps we developed, used to measure page load time on mobile devices. These apps run on the actual devices, load a page on demand, and measure how long it took.
    Their goal was to create a test that would measure a user's real-world experience. Their test's showed that, " ...Android wasn’t just faster overall, but rather provided a faster browsing experience 4 times out of 5." To put it in perspective, the Android's median load time was 2.144 seconds vs. the iPhone’s median load time of 3.254 seconds.


    Apples are a tasty treat!

    wow. my experience with the stock is that it's junk; slow and returns what I think are suspect results from searches.
    I much prefer the miren browser.

    the latest is now that Apple is saying that Mobile Safari has optimizations that the iOS web viewer doesn't ... even though there has never been mention of it before the test results were released. and now it turns out that Apple is being accused of slowing web apps to favor its app store... ouch!

    You obviously never used a 3rd party HOSTS file. Improves the stock browser 5011%... on top of blocking ALL ads.
