Speed Tests: Benchmarking the Android browsers

With an open ecosystem and unrestricted market, consumers always benefit by having the option to choose which product they want to use.  One of the best examples of this is the number of web browsers available to consumers on the Android Market.  Yes, many of them have unique features that give each of them a small advantage over the competition, but I’m sure we can all agree that speed is one of the main concerns for most of us.

To help us sort everything out, PC World has pitted some of the most popular Android web browsers against each other to see which one rises to the top.  To be honest, the results should not be shocking to most of you who have used other browsers than Google’s stock option, but we were a little taken aback by the fact that Skyfire 2.0 did take the number one spot.

If you have never tested out any of the browsers features in PC World’s test, we’d highly recommend you head on over to the Android Market and give a few of them a try.  Skyfire 2.0, Opera Mini, and Dolphin HD all offer a pretty unique browsing experience that you simply don’t get with Google’s stock browser.

We’d be interested to hear which browser you use on a regular basis. Leave us a note in the comments to let us know which is number one on your Android phone.
