PlayBook Browser rapidly improving

RIM has been rapidly improving the browser in the PlayBook. The recent update of the beta to continues this trend.

Based on the html5 test the new beta scores a 308 while OS scores only a 257. This continued progress is good to see, and shows that RIM has a solid commitment to offering the best browser possible. Now all RIM has to do is finally get around to shipping this update.

As a point of comparison BlackBerry 7 scores a 260, BlackBerry 6 scored a 241, iOS 5 scores a 296, and Android 4.0 scores a surprisingly low 230. Windows Phone (as you might expect) scores a terrible 140.
