IE9 on Windows Phone 7 will make browsing much faster than iPhone

In the above video by 99Percentage, we have Joe Belfiore demonstrating IE9 on a current gen Windows Phone 7 handset with the IE9 update promised today, and the video demonstrates the benefit of hardware acceleration in the browser, with the Windows Phone 7 handset managing to render 50 fish using HTML5 smoothly, while Safari on the iPhone 4 appearing to struggle with only a few.

The improvements Microsoft is bringing to the browser on Windows phone 7 is doing a lot to reduce demand for other third part browsers, and it seems Microsoft may be able to tout it as the best browser, even across platforms also.
