The Android 2.2 (Froyo) platform was touted by Vic Gundotra of Google to have superior performance when he showed off the Nexus One blowing by the iPad at the Google IO Conference recently. Many Apple followers claimed foul because the test was done running older Apple hardware.
Looks like Vic was dead on with his demo. Apple has some work ahead of them if they really want to compete in the browser war.
