New iPhone bests Android in web benchmarks

Seems like its the new iOS 5 software, not the hardware, that's giving the boost, according to PC Magazine's Alex Colon:

The 4S wins out on Web performance as well, but there's something interesting happening here if you look closely. An iPhone 3GS running iOS 5 scored significantly better on the Web benchmarks than an iPhone 4 running iOS 4. Even though the iPhone 4 is the more powerful of the two devices, this difference shows us that iOS 5 delivers a significant boost to Javascript performance. So if you're using an iPhone 4 or an iPhone 3GS, make sure to update your device to iOS 5.

Compared to the latest and greatest Android devices, the iPhone 4S is still tops for Web browsing. It scored significantly better than the Motorola Droid Bionic on Verizon, the Motorola Photon on Sprint, and the Samsung Galaxy S II on AT&T. But again, these benchmarks aren't completely what they seem.
