    All it takes is an update to iOS and the speed for HTML5 can be increased. I don't see a problem here.

    That's EXACTLY what I was going to post.

    Independent tests are really the only ones you can trust.

    I think the test was rigged because when I tried some microsoft benchmarking test on my 3GS for HTML5, I was getting a mere 11-13FPS.

    Typical Windows users, relying on numbers and specs as usual.

    Well, regardless of the situation, if this is rigged or not, this still shows a very good thing: Microsoft stepping up, pushing for standards support in their browser, and pushing that engine into anything they produce with a real effort.

    WP7 shipped with a weird hybrid IE7/8 engine that put bluntly, is one of the worst parts of the phone. This update includes the IE9 engine, which has been a huge step in the right direction on the desktop.

    At the end of the day, the fact that this engine is now in the same class as WebKit/Gecko is a boon for the web and web developers. HTML5 apps that I can develop and target iOS/Android/WP(IE9) with? Yes please.
