I’m quite pleased with the N9’s built-in web browser performance but some might think it’s a little light on the features, options or customizations.
Recently, two new competing web browsers became available for free at the Nokia Store for the N9:
– Mozilla Firefox v10.0.2
– Opera Mobile Labs v11.50.21
As you can see, Firefox did it in 3284.8 ms and Opera completed the same test in 5772.3 ms.
Opera took substantially more time than Firefox doing the same benchmark, so it definitely has a lot of room for improvement on future updates.
N9’s PR1.2 firmware update is expected to arrive soon, so let’s see if the stock browser also gets some performance improvements.
