I think this is another biased review: iPhone is the best bla bla... Example: you should have tested Symbian with other free alternative browsers, this would have been more fair. iPhone being the standard? you guys are cell phone pros and you say this??? It is lacking features that I had in my K610i back in 2006.

To summarize, GSMArena has to decide if it setting the trend or following it. We love you guys, make the right choice :-)

ok guys first of all i guess without a doubt that iPhone takes the championship of the web shootout.
Secondly HTC HD2 has a web browser which is called Skyfire and it has full flash support. It opens every video sharing site and runs the vids smoothly.
howcome the GSm Arena guys didn't even mention that there was a browser for the HTC HD2 which fully supported flash.
Also you can install Adobe Flash Player for Windows Mobile which enables internet explorer on HTC HD2 to open flash based sites.

Skyfire is the one of the best browsers for the Omnia Hd, it plays and other flash websites and the scrolling is great....the built in browser does indeed suck

Although they didn't announce any winner here. But to me the winner is N900. Then opera is in second position. (overall averare result)

The n900 is great, but flash support not a great browser make. Speed and smoothness is what's missing compared to Opera Mobile 10 and Safari. The iPhone 3GS is by far the fastest browser out there, but OM 10 beta 3 on the HD2 comes close and sometimes even beats it. The resolution of the iphone 3GS is horrible though and I hated having to zoom in every time I wanted to read something.

So imho it goes OM 10 beta 3 = n900 > Iphone 3GS.

I think opera mini was not treated fairly. It downloads pictures, music files, videos and much more than just pictures like was reported back there. Another thing that should be taken into consideration there is that these should be tested on different devices to see how best they operate. Opera mobile is much better than what is reported here too.

I do not understand how they didn't test Skyfire. It uses a similar idea as Opera Mini, but it let's you watch any video, any flash, hear music...It works just like a full desktop browser. It should be included in these tests and get credit for most of them, since its the fastest browser available.
