dkd903 writes "According to developers and various tests , there is a very serious performance difference when web apps are launched from the iPhone home screen and when they are launched from the mobile Safari browser. When the web apps are launched from the home screen, the speed of the JavaScript execution is said to be about 2.5 times slower than when the same app is launched from Safari."
