In a showdown between the iPhone 3GS‘s Safari browser and the default browser on the HP Mini 110, the speed of the iPhone’s browser far outstripped that of Internet Explorer 7.
Of course, Safari works better on the netbook than it does on an iPhone 3GS, completing the benchmark in only 3,606ms.
In general, default browsers that come with netbooks tend to be relatively slower than the competitors. Internet Explorer 8 is a better bet than IE7, but if you’re looking for even faster performance, try out Google Chrome. You can download it here.
