Safari in iOS 7 has better performance than iOS 6

As the new Apple iOS 7 has been finally released, I have upgraded an iPad 2 and compared the performance of Safari Mobile browser in iOS 7 to iOS 6. The benchmark results show that iOS 7 has better performance in web browsing and better compliance to web standards. Have a look at the comparison table:

Browser Browsermark Octane Benchmark HTML5 Test CSS3 Test
Safari / iOS7 2288 1479 399 + 9 61%
Safari / iOS6 2022 935 386 + 9 59%
Improvement 13% 58% 3% 2%
