One major reason behind the success of Android has been its desktop level browsing capabilities. The android browser is pretty decent. However most people use either Opera Mobile or Dolphin BrowserHD for desktop like browsing experience. Both these got major updates recently. We decided to benchmark them in order to see who is the deadliest warrior… oops the best browser. We used Opera Mobile 11.5 and Dolphin HD 7.0.2 for these benchmarks
The benchmark includes tests to generate a tagcloud from JSON input, a 3D raytracer, cryptography tests, code decompression, and many more examples. There Results mostly represent real world performance.
The HTML5 test score is an indication of how well the browser supports the upcoming HTML5 standard and related specifications.
We further decided to see the ACTUAL performance of these browsers. For our next test we chose 5 random website, cleared the cache and calculated the loading times (all times in seconds). Connection speed 512kbps
As you can see, Opera is much faster than BrowserHD in actual loading of webpages. Do tell us which is your favorite browser. Happy surfing
