RIM Demos HTML5 Browser Speed Improvements in PlayBook OS 2.0 vs 1.0

PlayBook Browser COmparison

We told you yesterday that RIM had detailed some of the new features and improvements in PlayBook OS 2.0’s Browser but it was hard to describe them. Adam @RIM decided to take on that challenge and show off the PlayBook 2.0’s improvements over OS 1.0 in a side by side video. He takes it through 3 different HTML5 graphics tests to show you the potential of these improvements and why HTML5 has a serious future for apps. Check it out below:

  1. One of the highest needed improvements from 1.0…. Hopefully the browser crashing has been mostly fixed too. I ran into that a lot on 1.0 builds…

  2. I honestly don’t find the browser any faster and I prefer “simple browser”. Seems to work a little better.
