<p>After struggling for years with sub-par browsers on small screen devices Apple did a good job raising the bar with Safari on the iPhone and now iPad. Google for some reason stumbled a little out of the gate with the browser on Android &#8211; rather than take their existing and proven Chrome they delivered an older and less capable core and it looks like only now with the 4.x generation devices that they&#8217;re finally starting to improve things (though that doesn&#8217;t help the 80-90% of their existing user base who will never get an upgrade to the latest goodness)</p> <p></p> <p>With the initial release of Windows Phone 7 it seemed like Microsoft had fallen into the trap of not treating mobile browsing as a first class experience and they shipped an IE7-like browser. That changed however with the release of v7.5 &#8220;Mango&#8221; which brought the full capabilities of IE9 (arguably the most standard adherent HTML5 browser) to the platform.</p> <p></p> <p>With people paying more attention to the mobile browser evolution and digging into capabilities (such as <a href="http://www.sencha.com/blog/galaxy-nexus-the-html5-developer-scorecard/"> this review from Sencha</a>) and arguing that the mobile <a href="http://scripting.com/stories/2011/12/13/whyAppsAreNotTheFuture.html"> web is not going away any time soon</a> it would be great to see how the &quot;Mango&quot; with IE9 stacks up in these tests against the other two... Would be great to see Sencha or similar <a href="http://www.sencha.com/blog/galaxy-nexus-the-html5-developer-scorecard/"> run their tests</a> against all three? So far playing around with IE9 in Mango, it seems to do a really good job in most situations but I've not drilled down to quite the level of detail that they have yet.</p>
