Anna Browser vs Vanilla S^3: 7.3 vs 7.2

| July 16, 2011 | 36 Replies

For the weekend reading we can go check out AllAboutSymbian’s feature on the new Anna browser, comparing speed differences between 7.3 and 7.2 (in vanilla).

In this isntance Rafe Blanford is comparing C7 with X7 with default browser over 4Mbps ADSL connection. The core internals relevant to testing are identical in C7 and X7. Similar tests on N97 mini (with and without 7.3 showed 30% improvements in the latter). As expected from Rafe, the results are repeated 5 times, discarding the slowest and fastest results to come up with some pretty fair results on the default browser speeds.

Caching was allowed and Rafe notes this is much better on 7.3 (great for sites you visit quite often). I did note myself that with E6, browser load times was much more acceptable, as was general operation of the browser due to improved user interface.

Shorter bars is better.

Alternatively you can also check out comparisons between older Anna builds and PR1.2

As often mentioned, for even faster web, use Opera Mobile.
