Browser speed comparison - N86, N97, iPhone 3G, T-Mobile G1 and more

A browser performance test on mobile. Surprisingly, the S60 WebKit (five versions tested) is faster than either iPhone or Android.

The only thing I'm missing here is a reference to S60's extremely aggressive caching. Still, I might use the methodology described here myself later on.

Someone at Apple, please review stance on PhoneGap

Apple refuses iPhone apps that are written with the Phonegap library.

If they don't rescind this ban I'm forced to conclude that Apple is Evil.

WebKit == Mobile

Alex Russell feels Webkit is in the process of winning the browser wars on mobile. Although he has a point, I'm missing a mention of Opera.

Alex also calculates how much less Dojo you'd have to download in a Webkit-only universe. Although that's interesting, I'm wondering how much you'd save in a Gecko-only, or even an IE-only universe.

iPhone Javascript and spec benchmark

The first independent iPhone benchmark test, compared with a MacBook Pro. John Murch ran a few online benchmarks, among which my DOM vs. innerHTML one.

Unfortunately we still don't know if these figures can be compared with other browsers due to the Date object problems I posted about earlier.

Nonetheless the comparison between Safari 3 on MacBook Pro and iPhone is (should be) valid. Result: the iPhone is much, much slower (factor 100!). That's much more than I expected, frankly.
