Google has just released the too-long-in-coming Chrome for Android browser, and Phil from Android Central wasted no time loading it up on his Galaxy Nexus, and putting it up against an iPhone 4S running Safari, for a classic head-to-head, phono-e-phono, Mobile Nations browser showdown video.
Safari and iOS in general still offer smoother, more closely-tracked multitouch scrolling, panning, and zooming. (No doubt due to iOS placing priority on interface rendering tasks, while they're left to fight as equals on Android.)
Interestingly, Chrome, like Safari, offers no support for Adobe's Flash player, or any other internet plugin.
Chrome is still in beta and only available for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right now. No doubt the release version will be even better still.
Likewise, Apple isn't slowing down. With iOS 5.1 on the horizon, Safari will improve as well.
Check out the video below for full out web rendering showdown.
