Both Droid and iPhone offer advanced browsers, and Apple's was key to the iPhone's spectacular success. Both browers are based on the open source Webkit engine, both have user interfaces designed for mobile use and touch, and both implement the emerging HTML 5 APIs, which now let browsers store and use apps and data locally without a network connection. Droid will support Flash 10 in 2010, and now supports a double-tap to zoom in and out. At left: Apple's mobile Safari browser; at right: the Droid's Android browser.
