Android 2.3 Bests iPhone in Browser Battle

Blaze, a company designed to help clients optimize their websites,  recently conducted study of mobile browsers to see which was faster.  Pitting Android 2.3 against iOS 4.3 there could only be one winner.  If you read the headline coming in, you already know what happens.  Let’s break the details down a bit though, shall we?

After 45,000 page loads it was found that Android’s browser is a “whopping” 52% faster than the iPhone browser.  In fact, when tested across the Fortune1000 websites, Android came out on top 84 percent of the time.  To be fair, the iPhone’s median load time (3.254 seconds) is very close to the Android median load time (2.144 seconds).  In real world scenarios, one second longer is negligible.   The tests were conducted on multiple phones with both Wi-Fi and 3G connections with no other applications running in the background.

The full set of findings is a good read and really details how the study was conducted.  It’s definitely worth a few minutes of your time.

    forgot to mention that Google is COOL:)

  • Both browsers are nice and offer great features Speed is not the only factor. Android browser scores 93/100 on the acid3 tests.. IOS scores 100/100. Pinch to zoom formats better on ios. Android has Flash though. its a give and take. So I don’t think a few milliseconds will kill anyone.

  • Office 2010

    I am a writer and would benefit by having Publisher included in this Microsoft Office 2010. Use Word 2010 and had to have the new version so my documents would open correctly.In fact, I thought it was, so I was sorely disappointed when I realized I now need to buy yet another Office 2010. Coming from Microsoft Office , it is taking time getting use to the new ways of doing the same thing I did in the older version.Stop nickel-and-diming customers.I have used it only one day; therefore I can’t tell how long it will take to adapt. Give people what we need and we’ll gladly purchase things in the future. In fact, we’ll more likely buy Office 2007 because you haven’t required payment for all these other things (like Publisher) Microsoft Office 2007 should have been included in the first place.
