Benchmark and Compare your browsers performance

By | 26th March, 2011 | 3 Comments

Ever wanted to check the performance of your browser or even more compare it with different browsers, I do. It makes a lot of difference when a browser can load different contents faster than the other. The web surfing goes smooth and with less lag as heavy codes gets dragged into the browser.

Peacekeeper from Futuremark is a free application that lets you test your browsers performance with multiple test phases and rank the browsers accordingly. The tests use JavaScript to test the browsers performance in graphics rendering, forms and navigation. It however doesn’t test the security or the W3 compatibility features of the browser. But graphics rendering, quick forms and navigation are mostly the things that make your browser experience faster. You are however going to need JAVA Runtime Environment to run this application in your browser.

Above are the results from my pc for IE, Chrome, Firefox and SWare Iron. Here are the steps that you need to do to compare your browsers.

Get the Latest JAVA Runtime Environment if you haven’t got it installed already.

Go to Peacekeeper : Browser Bookmark Page.

You’ll get a report for your browser in a page. And a link to compare it with the other browsers.

Then paster the link on one of your other browser and start benchmarking that browser. The stats for the previous browser is preserver with the link that is provided which helps you get a better view of the browser comparisions.

Here are some of the test it performs on your browser.

TEST #1 : Rendering

These tests measure your browser’s ability to render and modify specific HTML elements used in typical web pages.

Test # 2 : Social networking

Social networking sites use JavaScript to provide navigation, forms and other features. These tests measure typical webpage functions, such as loading, sorting and searching for data.

Test # 3 : Complex graphics

These tests use ‘Canvas’, a new web technology for drawing and manipulating graphics without external plug-ins. Canvas is not yet supported by all major browsers so the scores from these tests are not included in the overall Peacekeeper score.

Test # 4 : Data Operations

Almost everything you see on a dynamic webpage uses JavaScript arrays. These tests measure your browser’s ability to add, remove and modify data stored in an array.

Test # 5 : DOM Operations

DOM, or Document Object Model, is the standard API Javascript uses to create dynamic webpages. These tests emulate the methods used to create typical dynamic webpages.

Test #6 : Text parsing

These tests measure your browser’s performance in typical text manipulations such as using a profanity filter for chats, browser detection and form validation.

Take this on a test drive and see how your browser perform. I think they will give a good choice on which browser to choose from for better browsing experience.
