iOS 5 solves speed issues in web apps

Developers have confirmed that iOS 5 solves a slowdown for home screen web apps. A confirmation Thursday showed that, the gateway for web apps operating outside of Safari, has the same "dynamic-codesigning" privilege as Safari and can use the Nitro JavaScript engine key to the speed-up in iOS 4.3.

iPad 2 4X faster in SunSpider web tests

Early tests of the iPad 2's web performance have suggested a major lift in speed over the original. The combination of iOS 4.3's Nitro engine in Safari with the dual-core A5 gave the newer tablet a SunSpider JavaScript completion time of 2121.7ms, or just over four times faster than the original iPad's 8594.9ms. SlashGear's benchmarks showd it excelling the most in a 3D raytracing test, scoring over five times faster, but also better than the average in access and cryptography tests.
