Compare Your Web Browser Performance With Over 7000 Tests Results

March 1, 2010 | Filed under Browser


You can find some web browser test results published on the Internet where a few browsers are being compared to find which one is the best and fastest. Currently the few popular browsers are Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari and Chrome. Those tests are done by other people and how do you know if they apply to you or whether it is not a biased test in the first place? The best way to test your browser is if you could compare your results with other people and here is just one way that I know how to.

Benchmark web browser and compare results

Browserscope is an open-source project for profiling web browsers and storing and aggregating crowd-sourced data about browser performance. The goals are to foster innovation by tracking browser functionality and to be a resource for web developers. The ability for users to contribute results is the key for Browserscope’s longevity, accuracy, and currency.

* No dedicated test resources are required; enabling the project to run in perpetuity
* Tests are run under a wide variety of real world test conditions
* Aggregating results reduces selection bias
* New browsers show up immediately due to developer testing

Currently there are over 7000 tests that has been performed and the list is still growing as you can see that the “Recent tests” window shows that there are tests being performed every minute of every day. Currently BrowserScope performs 5 types of tests which is Security, Rich Text, Selectors API, Network and Acid3. If you look at the current results, Google Chrome seems to lead in most of the tests except for Network which Firefox got the first place.

Go give Browserscope a try and test your web browser to see how it fares against the other browsers. It’s free and open source!
