As true Android fans we all knew that this was the case, but now we have some concrete facts thanks to Ottawa based Blaze Software. They conducted a grueling 45,000 browsers tests pitting Safari on iOS against the stock browser on Android 2.2 and 2.3, and the results were outstanding for Android. The Android devices proved to load pages 52% faster on average, which was a bit of a surprise that the platform dominated by that amount.
Personally I was not surprised that Android was faster, but the margin by which it was faster was a nice surprise. For anyone that doesn’t think this is true, the numbers don’t lie.
So if you happen to find yourself chatting with an iPhone loving friend today make sure that you let them know that while their retina display may be impressive, your browser is faster!
