    How is Safari performance under the latest beta ?

    Can someone run these benchmarks & share the results ?

    - RightWare BrowserMark
    - Peacekeeper - The Browser Benchmark from Futuremark Corporation
    - SunSpider 0.9.1 JavaScript Benchmark (sunspider-0.9.1 test suite - In Progress...)

    HTML5Test score seems pretty good btw: The HTML5 test - How well does your browser support HTML5?

    While I have not run those benchmarks, I can say the performance seems on par with beta 2.

    There ls much less lag in beta 3, and it seems as solid as 4.3.3 was... I have not encountered any real issues with iOS5 beta 3 on my iPad2... I didn't load the beta on here until beta 3... but I have no complaints.

    You had lag in the browser in beta 2?

    Well actually i'm curious if Apple has implemented Webkit2.

    Comparing to some non stock Android browser (esp. in Cyanogen mod) Safari scores a bit lower from those tests. (and yes i know Cyanogen mods are also coming with overclock options to result to yield much higher scores)

    I have an iPhone 4 and in real life usage most of the time browsing speed seems enough i would expect a little bit of a boost in a major release comparing to the previous.

    Can you guys give us some numbers ? Since i don't have a dev account, cant play with those benchies myself

    You're limited by processing power as well. An A4/5 isn't going to render as fast as a laptop or desktop. You can optimize of course, but you can't get around pure horsepower.

    I have iOS 5 beta 3 on my IPad 2, and the problem that I have with the browser is that it crashes/closes a lot.

    I am finding that Safari is the same (buggy/crashes) from Beta 2. After time, Safari seems to slow to a crawl and even become unresponsive.

    I notice it will just start rendering blank white pages at times and more crashes than beta 2.

    Thx a lot FiftyPenceR8 for the scores.

    It seems according to iOS 4.3.x, iOS 5 beta 3 Safari performance gained around %7-8.

    Considering final code would be more optimized i hope we can get around %10 or maybe a little more.

    It's important for me cuz probably Safari is the app that i use most.

    Hi people, first post here!!! Anyway, I have 1 question about the Safari browser in the upcoming iOS 5 update: will it have the column adjusting ability of the Android browser - as in the re-sizing and zoom ability?

    I love my iPhone 4 - I left Verizon for AT&T because of it (before the Verizon model came out, mind you) - but the tiny fonts that I can't adjust & the lackluster performance of the zooming compared to the Android phones I owned is just KILLING my eyes. I even need to wear reading glasses now - the fonts are soo darn small.

    I hope this is finally addressed in the new update,...or is there a setting I'm missing?

    Thanks, from a nOOb.

    PS: I forgot to mention - I'm using Safari quite a bit throughout the day, and I refuse to use another browser. I love my iPhone,...simple as that.
