    Default Mobile Safari in iOS 6 Has the Fastest HTML 5 Rendering of All Mobile Devices


    When it comes to rendering HTML5 on mobile devices, Apple’s Safari still seems to handle it better than its competing browsers, even faster than the unreleased Internet Explorer 10 browser for Windows Phone 8. According to the folks over at WPCentral, they ran some tests and used existing data to pit the browsers against one another.

    The same test being conducted using JavaScript resulted in Internet Explorer 10 doing a lot better than both Safari under iOS 6 beta and Android. It should be noted here that Jelly Bean was not tested in this experiment. Although SunSpider showed Windows 8 pulling ahead for Javascript, Apple’s Safari in iOS 6 beat all the competition when it came to the HTML5 rendering. The score for Safari under iOS 6 came in with a total of 360 points plus 9 bonus points, with Windows Phone 8 trailing behind with a score of 300 plus 6 bonus points, while Android 3.0 managed a 280 plus 3 bonus points.

    One thing to note is that both Safari under iOS 6 and Internet Explorer 10 are both unreleased to the general public, as they are both in beta. These numbers will likely change between now and when they are released publicly. It will definitely be interesting to see how the release candidates will do. Furthermore, it’ll also be interesting to see how Android Jelly Bean fares in comparison.

    Interesting...my iPhone 4 Safari on 5.1.1 gets 324 + 9 bonus points...but actually, my Galaxy SIII on Jelly Bean beats all of them in this article when using Chrome--It gets 369 + 11, so 11 more than the posted one for iOS 6.

    Ikr. Helps with the fact that we no longer have the native YouTube app.

    At the end of the day I bloody hope so! Considering Apple where the one pushing HTML5.

    On further inspection of the site, it would seem there talking out there arse.

    Chrome » All Android 4 devices 371 11
    Opera Mobile 12.00 » Multiple platforms 369 11

    & that's not even the development betas.

    WHERE do these people get their FAKE results?
    On the iPad 3 with both Safari and Chrome I get 324 and 9 bonus.
    On the Galaxy Tab 7.7 on ICS 4.0.4 using Chrome I get 369 and 11 bonus.

    So to me it looks like the Android better than IOS.
    When I see these tests saying the Apple device is better it's usually faked somehow and this is total proof they are.

    Want a laugh, try Opera on IOS. it get 63 and 0 bonus points. LOL
    BUT Opera on Android get 369 and 11 bonus points.

    Sorry, but this test has nothing to do with speed. Just compliance with standards. This was correct at the source, so I have no clue why you screwed it up so bad. That doesn't mean that I'm complaining about any phone though. iOS, Android, and Windows Phone are all pretty good.

    Faster maybe, better..is a broad term. Most droids are coming with a Gig of RAM. 4 and 4S both have 512MB at this time. So even if the Galaxy is faster in #'s it also has twice the RAM. Shouldn't the Droid be twice as fast?? :] Anyway..my phone is fast enough and I'm happy with its speeds. New phone is coming and Im hoping for at least a Gig of RAM..then we can run some tests.

    Hilarious that everyone ran their own tests and got the opposite of what the article claimed. Real world > lab tests.

    Wait wait wait. This is a compliance test not performance test.

    "The HTML5 test score is an indication of how well your browser supports the upcoming HTML5 standard and related specifications. Even though the specification isn't finalized yet, all major browser manufacturers are making sure their browser is ready for the future. Find out which parts of HTML5 are already supported by your browser today and compare the results with other browsers"

    HTML5 support sucks. No matter what you use. HTML5 could be great, but the implementation was poorly done.

    I'm just impressed the author wrote "Apple's Safari" rather than "the Cupertino, California company's Safari."
