What has given this bump to speedier surfing isn’t the new iPhone 3G’s hardware, but it is to do with the new Webkit build that the Apple iPhone 2.0 OS uses.

There is now, thanks to a touch of graphical bar help from Daring Fireball, a visual rep of just how much faster the Apple iPhone 2.0 OS’s Safari browser is, and it’s all down to improved Webkit performance.

If you take a look at the graph it shows Javascript benchmark performance using differing iPhone firmware versions, thus comparing the iPhone 2.0 OS Safari with the iPhone 1.1.4 OS Safari. The large jump is between 1.0.1 and 1.1.4 and there is a definitely pronounced jump between 1.1.4 and 2.0.
