Pocketables did some comparative testing of the Archos 5 web browser with the other main competitors that are Apple iPhone 3G and the Nokia N810: http://pocketables.net/2008/10/website-load-ti.html
They conclude that the Archos 5 browser is at least double as fast as the iPhone and N810 browser on many different types of websites.
Archos 5 browser support most AJAX and Flash contents which are very present on most websites.
Archos 5 provides 25% larger screen size then the Nokia 810 and double the amount of screen size compared to the iPhone. 2.5x the amount of pixels compared to the iPhone. All that in about the same footprint:
One thing that I think would be great for Archos to add in the web browser, is a scrolling momentum flick effect just like it currently has in other sections of the interface, such as currently when browsing long lists of files.
