On tap for this web browsing comparison, we’ve got the Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC One X, and the Nokia Lumia 900. Broadening the scope as usual, all three major platforms are well represented in this faceoff – giving us a good idea on how they all perform against one another...

in a race of 'mine is better, longer, faster', consumers are fed with model x, and then model xs and the saga continues...

gs3 stock ics browser is out dated, try the stock jellybean browser (plenty of stable jb roms out there for the gs3)

I had an SGS3 for a couple of weeks about 2 months ago. Benchmarks are, of course, only part of the story when it comes to how good a web browser is. I found the default browser to be almost unusable due to it's inability to make a large number of blocks of text fit the screen at a readable size. This meant lots of sideways scrolling to read content. I then switched to Chrome, which was much better for making content fit, but was ridiculously unstable and crashed very frequently. On the whole, I found the web browsing experience on the SGS3 to be pretty poor. The massive screen is rather a moot point when the functionality is lacking.

Good article, because it moved away from pure bench marking to page load times, and shows that in real world terms the performances are good across all platforms, and benchmarks aside you can browse and enjoy the experience on all. Good job
