Firefox Mobile for WM to perform better than Safari and Opera?

Firefox Mobile for WM to perform better than Safari and Opera?
From a recent test conducted with the help of Acid3, Firefox Mobile, a.k.a. Fennec, had a score of 88/100 on Windows Mobile. What is alarming is the fact that the Safari browser on the iPhone 3G scored a 74. This is an impressive achievement for Mozilla's upcoming and promising browser along with the fact that the alpha version of the browser has not even been released as of yet.

The Acid3 test enables one in ascertaining the level of a browser's rendering engine in respect to the degree it is standards compliant. In other words, it scores a browser on the ability to accurately display 'complex web pages.'

You should download skyfire or opera mini. With skyfire on my n95 and e71 the browsing experience was great and I clocked it at 385kbps.

Skyfire is currently not supported on Blackberrys

If Mozilla doesn't make it compatiable for blackberry they're just plain dumb. With over 25 million blackberry users nation wide and even more world wide, that seems like an awesome market.

If you weren't just as much a "geek loser" as anyone else on this site you wouldn't be here on a page about a new browser for mobile phones. Probably more so if all you are doing is stopping by here to make fun of people.

Seconded--isn't the fact that you're here proclaiming you're rather more geeky than your average phone user? And finding hookers as girlfriends? I won't even dignify that with my opinion. #24, you need a life. Fast.

You really are an idiot. You're reading the same article everyone else is. As far as dating a hooker, I gave your Mom a go, but it just seemed like she didn't respect herself. I need a woman with some principles, she just let me do what ever I wanted to.I feel bad about the whole thing really, I think I left a bad taste in her mouth...I think you know what I mean.

I ran that test on my desktop with firefox 3.0 and only scored a 71... so 88/100 on a mobile phn is impressive

As far as I'm concerned, Skyfire is the best browser out there. It gives a true desktop experience on my HTC Touch from Sprint.
