Yep, looks like fail button pressing to me as well. Notice how he had to move the screen to get the buttons to show up again before he hit home again?

I think it's made to take that long so you don't accidentally start flipping things around when you don't really want to. I'm sure they could make it flip much faster but decided to give it a delay.

Gallery app takes just as long.

If that is not smooth then i don't know what smooth is. I am an ex iphone 4 user so it's easy for me to compare.and i hate iphone's browsing. Always freezing on heavy sites.

Just a note, I thought the browser fluidity was more based on the implemention of a caching store, not exactly GPU acceleration, according to Anandtech.

So just now with ics, android is finally at the same level as ios. It took years for the google engineers to develop gpu acceleration?

Nope.. it's been done in android before - Samsung had some phones that did it..

It's just taken this long to mandate its use. Which is quite understandable when you have to be able to support 50 phones which don't have much of a GPU to speak of as well as 500 uber phones.

Agree. That's how the iPhone's browser is smooth. It stores caches and use that cache while zooming so that the smoothness will be like zooming an image in thw gallery app. Not like android which still render while zooming

So I will have to view webpages on a Droid 3 as if I have a cheap $50 phone just because google thought that one size fits all was a better policy? That's mediocre thinking.

Iphone creates a picture of the webpage and you were right, it scrolls em smooth as in the gallery app. When you reach the boundary of the rendered picture, it quickly rerenders the rest of the page from the cache. From the movies, it's still not in Aosp, only in samsung stock roms.

There are checker boards which indicates GPU acceleration.
On my SGS1 running 2.3.6, I have underclocked the phone to 200MHz and scrolling on endgadget desktop site is buttery smooth.
