Benchmark your Browser

Ever wondered if your browser is fast enough?  Ever wanted to benchmark your browser?  Well there’s this tool called Futuremark that will do that for you.  Here’s a summary:

Futuremark’s aim with this benchmark is to put an end to the so-called “browser wars” by removing subjective opinions or analysis of performance with too much room for variability such as loading times.

ZoomTypically, a newly released browser will be subdued to the well known Acid3 web standards test but there are few universally used benchmarks which measure the performance of common web page functions. Peacekeeper is a purely JavaScript-driven benchmark and therefore only tests JavaScript functions. It does not test actual web page loading times and is therefore not affected by connection speeds and the variation that can occur there, nor does it test things like Flash.
