Post Speed-comparison of browsers

I was curios how the different browsers compare and did a 30 minute test of some Android-browsers. Some notes about the test:
  • I did this for my own curiousity, not scientific correctness. Just sharing here if anyone else is interested.
  • The test was done by loading 11 webistes on
  • Each website was tested separately, with the browsers in random order.
  • No ad-block was enabled, and mobile site was requested.
  • Dolphin browser was in the test but choked on some pages, so I excluded it from the results.
  • Numbers indicate load-time in seconds and 1/100.

What is your opinion, do these results match your experience?

Tested on 25.5.14 - Average load time
Boat Browser for tablet: 7,8
Opera Browser: 8,1
UC Browser HD: 8,2
Chrome: 9,3
Habit Browser: 10,1
Javelin: 10,6
Firefox: 10,7

Interesting comparison

I'm sure speed freaks will find this very interesting.

Thanks for posting this up.

Quick question though. Are there any special options that boat browser offers vs chrome (which I use exclusively) that would pull a chrome user over? Like special features besides the quicker load times.
browser, speed, test
