Fixya just released an interesting report about mobile browsing experience and declared Safari the big winner.
The Fixya team combed through 60,000 help requests for mobile web browsers and found that Apple's Safari mobile is the "most usable web browser". In second place came Chrome found in stock Android.
Some of the positive characteristics of Safari mobile, as highlighted by Fixya, were:
- simple user interface
- ability to perform multiple actions with a specific webpage (adding bookmark, adding to home-screen, mailing the link, sharing the link, printing the page, etc)
- the powerful reading list feature built into the browser.
Even though Safari won this fight, it isn't perfect and Fixya shared the top 5 user complaints about it.
