Just a single page, over WiFi, but still interesting to watch. There is something to that 'S'.

I'll admit the iPhone 3G S is very fast. My wife has used the iPhone and then iPhone 3G before she moved to the BlackBerry yesterday. Let's say that she hears more than a earful about smartphones. After I shot the video, I suggested she give the 3G S a quick spin. Less than thrilled, she fired up her favorite celebrity gossip page. Her response, that was f'in fast. She's not the swearing type, but I guess that's what speed can do to you.

Thanks Chris, nice comparison. Not only is the iPhone way faster, the screen renders much better.

I love my 3GS but the Pre kicks it's ass on downloading the sites I use most.
On wifi.....and it's way worse on 3G.
I had a pre for 10 days. The time to download my sites on this 3G S doesn't compare to the Pre's I had. Consistently...every time! Deal with it.
(Total package tho, it's still no iPhone)

Well technically the 3GS hasn't hit its full potential since ATT is being lazy and not updating their end.

Wireless network and coverage will play a big part. As I noted on the homepage, CNET"s test yielded the opposite results.

I don't browser speed would influence someone one way or the other. Both phones are plenty fast.

Right, I agree...multifactorial...but it really doesn't make any difference, the real world result: actual browsing experience: Pre wins ...easily.

I was hoping someone had did this, because i know my results already LOL, i just wanted to see if it was only me who wasn't seeing a big change or no change at all.
I will try to dig out my camcorder and make a video to show, and hopefully someone else will do and maybe its just my connection
