Benchmarks Show Chrome Now Ahead of the Default Android Browser

6 March, 2013 Android





Chrome for Android has just been updated and according to Google, it is faster and is more suited to use on small smartphone screens. Furthermore, it has released Octane benchmark results that show a marked 25% improvement from the last update. The new Chrome for Android is also based on the latest V8 JavaScript engine.


To confirm that Chrome for Android is now better, Ars Technica has performed three separate benchmarks on the Octane, Kraken and the SunSpider just to downplay the point that Octane results could be "partial", since it is also owned by Google. The results were stable and it showed that indeed, Chrome for Android is now ahead of the old version as well as the default Android browser. However, it still does not support Flash, which many users are really looking into. But surely, Google must have reasons for not supporting Flash and we only have to wait and see what they have in store for the users. Meanwhile, you can download your latest Chrome for Android over at Google Play.
