Chrome Beta for Android was just released earlier today, and we decided to put the new browser through some HTML5 tests, and the results were not just impressive for a mobile browser, they were impressive for any browser...

If Chrome is that good, and it is still a Beta version, I can`t imagine how good it will be when the full version comes out!!!!!!!!!!

I think google likes to put "beta" even if it is fully working tested validated
maybe because there is always something to fix or improve

I have a question for you guys. Apple iPad plays the videos on PA on HTML5, but when I visit PA on Chrome Beta on my Xoom, I cannot play the videos?

Chrome is supposed to run on ICS
Even if you've got a custom ICS ROM for your Xoom, who knows if it'll work 100%. This is why it's still beta too I'm guessing...

Not sure what the issue is, but I do see the same problem on my Nexus. The videos do work when you follow them to the mobile YouTube site tho.

I found Chrome to be in between the two. Firefox was a bit faster, but stock was a bit slower.

How is Chrome compared to Opera and Dolphin? Opera seems the faster to me but it's tricky to use in sites like fb and has some rendering errors sometimes. Dolphin is slower but behaves correctly with fb (desktop mode).

Srzlysrly, we didn't pick Safari over IE9, we just passed along the rankings from HTML5test.com. Based on their testing, IE9 comes in dead last with a score of 141. That's what we saw, that's what we reported. Any bias is squarely in your eyes, not our words.

Great news,and this comes after all the constant ramblings from ifans of flash being dead,ifans never wanted or needed flash and constant ifan nonsense trying to offset their lack of flash by trying to boast the future use of html5 in iphones.

Android not surfs with complete flash browsing but also it seems its top dog for html5.

As expected from the fastest computer browser to play the fastest mobile browser. Even in beta I can't wait for the final version!
