iOS leaves Android in the dust for HTML 5 performance

Tony Bradley | March 6, 2012
The future of Web-based apps seems to be HTML5. As ubiquitous as it is on PCs, Adobe Flash has failed to catch on in the mobile world, and alternate solutions like Silverlight are too proprietary. A new report finds that iOS blows Android out of the water when it comes to HTML 5 performance.

It is worth noting that the spaceport.io PerfMarks report only looks at iOS and Android. Microsoft is a supporter of HTML 5, so it seems reasonable to assume that the Windows Phone platform would perform admirably on these tests. Hopefully future reports will include a wider range of platforms for a more comprehensive study of the available devices and operating systems.
