Side-by-side browser test on the HD2, iPhone and Acer neoTouch

Browser wars are a favorite pastime among smartphone nerds, and here we have a battle royale from Solopalmari featuring the iPhone, the HTC HD2 and the Acer neoTouch (don't expect to see that one in the states anytime soon). Of course, this test isn't really indicative of anything other than showing how fast each browser is on each phone — we'll leave the "best!" comments up to you guys in the comments.

  • Bummer they are testing a pre cached website.
  • not shocking with a 1Ghz Snapdragon. There'd be an issue if it was slower then say an iphone rendering. Curious though if its using Opera 9.7 (supposedly shipping on them) and if its proxy or not though.
  • Yes, they are using Opera 9.7 with Turbo on, but that won't affect the test much because the page is preloaded. Plus, notice that a YouTube video is there, and not on the iPhone! That means the iPhone has the benefit of not using the resource-heavy flash plugin. Here's a machine translation of the original page: "That's right, regarding the comparison, make a few clarifications: * the test can not have value strictly objective, but the results reflect, in principle, the behavior of the three terminals in use;
    * Opera Mobile were activated in the plugins and "Turbo Opera";
    * device in the Internet page used as a sample (the "heavy" home of SoloPalmari) had been previously opened, so browsers have certainly benefited from the presence of the cache, but at the same time, all the HTML client has been imposed upgrade and not merely reopening of content."
  • Hi Nice and amazing technology and there are many people have got benefit to it.
  • IE and safari had the same time, 19seconds
  • good article and thank you!
