Internet Explorer and Safari speeds even out
Windows Phone 7 handsets are out and about and with the newest Internet Explorer the browser wars are back in their full glory. The first simple browser speed tests are in, this time the contender Internet Explorer faces the reigning champ – Apple's Safari... and it seems the matchup is a draw.

Or close enough to a draw, we would not count Safari's one second advantage in loading a webpage for a significant difference. That comes to prove once more that IE is nothing like before and Microsoft really came up with a winner this time. We noticed earlier the smooth scrolling, accurate pinch-to-zoom and double-tap actions, and delved into more detail in our in-depth Windows Phone 7 Walkthrough. Feel free to peak in there and get a better understanding of Internet Explorer and the new OS.

As a final note, we should add that with the two browsers, surfing the web is a breeze and picking an OS comes down more to other supported features rather than web performance. Which one would you choose?
