Dieter just told us about Crackberry Kevin's uber-frustrating experiences trying to pit the iPhone 3G and Blackberry Bold head to head in the browser war to end all browser wars. But -- silver lining -- for iPhone users, not only did we snag bragging rights, but a handy tip as well!

Unlike the Blackberry Bold, the iPhone defaults to having Javascript enabled. As anyone who's waited -- and waited -- for an overstuffed Facebook profile to load already knows, Javascript can be heavy lifting for a browser. For WebApps, it's a necessary sacrifice, but if all you want is casual browsing, you can turn Javascript off and send MobileSafari into turbo mode.

Here's how:

From the iPhone home screen, tap Settings. Scroll down and tap the Safari button. Under Security, slide Javascript to Off.

There you go, you've just switched to light, clean HTML and CSS mode (still technically "just the internet" -- unless you're in the UK...). In's tests, it made a big difference on some sites. Let us know how it works for you!

(Thanks to Crackberry Kevin!)
