Blaze Software conducted a ridiculously comprehensive browser speed test between Android and iPhone to determine which platform has the faster browser. After 45,000 tests, they found that in terms of straight line browser speed, the Android browser smokes the iPhone.
The Android browser was on average 52 per cent faster than the iPhone, which meant an average time of 2.1 seconds per site load vs 3.2 seconds for the iPhone. That's a pretty big difference! And Android was consistently faster than the iPhone too, in Blaze's tests, Android bested the iPhone in 84 per cent of the tested websites with the iPhone only winning 16 per cent of the time.
