The Fix: Mobile browser showdown

6:12 /

Watch as Chrome, Safari, and Opera Mini are put through their paces in a real-world mobile-browser speed test.

Forget it. -- speed racetrack was better venue for a new mobile browser speed test. We've got three different browsers here you see it going with one of the other good. If you an advantage that's right in order to make it -- test Brawley's in the same phones -- using an iPhone but as is well connected to the scene four G wireless hot spot. We all make sure that would create our cash is cleared out cookies and cleared our browser history. And what we're going to do is load -- three types of what page is okay we've got a new site -- picture heavy website and a meteor -- site. And I'm going to use -- I'll be using safari. I've got opera. Enter my New York Times after -- I let's go. And why key frames dot com I -- go 123. Go and -- go that Nintendo are ranked her one word. 230. Right from wrong. Not your underground hamster who who lag and we got on his -- and all done. How can I do you want -- confidence they might look I'm thinking a bit longer than I expected out and I think it knows that has go okay. -- and come opera and -- -- fun. These are connected to the -- -- Jihad and does did not like opera what do you think about moving on and we'll come back tomorrow and we'll see how it goes. Yeah. Closed as it got picked up I mean I think that's a real world result it -- For whatever reason -- happens to -- Iowa maybe it's gonna do better than -- -- -- -- app we have one of my favorite web sites. And dressed dot com want to. Come on I think it is obvious I hope I spelled it right now I can run. 23. Off again and and is your battery. Problem -- it -- -- -- like. A quarter of the wake -- I'm done I want. I think you did you search for dinner tonight I don't know how has been hacked and so that's and that -- and -- it. -- -- -- -- -- Yeah. Yeah. Yeah nice -- came through finally an hour later I -- is. The only down okay last one giant bomb dot com -- -- -- already one. To -- to me. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think -- wonderful then I might wanna know again. -- Thirdly there. It's almost stuff. That's like almost there finally yeah seriously I don't know how I got some meets you know fine -- -- hot spot that is not super excellent. All of the -- glad. -- and that. Let me. Little weird -- -- do you guys mind if we do not -- They just general well we got the clear cache down so let's preview this because my -- loading experience. Ran into -- collections are going to parent. Got fans and tried out -- again and sometimes yeah real world tasks -- -- now -- kind of last month to. Three -- and it. -- I don't know if I'm only action and I'm I'm nervous start at the age of opera has the -- -- -- -- pages. I know a little problems again if you -- its buttons he said. -- forgy hotspots -- booted it says this rating go man maybe that's gonna help -- get a little extra speed. 123. Go. -- I don't know how -- I don't know -- As a senator got them done yeah. They. Of them helped my and I need you and I'm sorry to say that -- -- I have a lot of had a lot of hope for opera now -- operatives. Flopping all over the play them. They'll look quick let's go -- some how to tips and quick tips for each of our browser and at night. So on opera a couple of different things -- you to read the optimize the speed here -- maybe you actually get needed finished loading the page. I go to settings. And it sees the first two options here are for loading images he got eternal load images our extranet text indicates that New York -- that might be helpful. Or if you wanna keep your images -- there but change the quality at my could change image quality from -- Down -- low. And see if -- And I'll just say briefly about safari is that it is your default browser so any link you click on like an email or something. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But also to have an iPad you can take advantage of -- reading -- so if you don't have time to read the story on a web page you wanna just push into your iPad until we do that very easily with it's hard. And it Chrome is it jam packed with features that one -- is -- -- -- -- pages based on where the browser things you're going to go and -- And then another great one is tab syncing so if you're on Chrome desktop -- -- -- over here phone you're going to be able to load those exact same tabs. Just real time so we can all safely say that. Chrome was the winner of this particular test yeah -- Yeah and now I -- Chrome as the -- -- deliberately it's. I want it -- -- pressed the button I can press the magic button -- -- thing here if very --
