Apple, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla publish browser benchmarks

Speedometer 3.0 is optimized for Blink, Gecko and WebKit. Various tests are intended to evaluate the performance of browsers.

The browser benchmark Speedometer is now available Version 3.0 before. The tool was developed by the leading browser providers Apple, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla. For the new version, the companies have what they believe to be the case most important tests and workloads selectedto evaluate and further improve a browser’s performance.

Since a single test alone is not enough to simulate the entire web, the latest version supports numerous scenarios. According to the Speedometer 3.0 website, the tool performs the following tests: working with a to-do list (measuring the time to add, complete and remove 100 items in a simple list), editing rich text (loading and styling text in WYSIWYG- and code editors), charting (loading and interacting with SVG and canvas charts), and reading a news website (navigating web pages and interacting with a typical-looking news website).

According to the testing methodology, the goal of all workloads is to “represent a scenario that could be found on the web. Although all workloads attempt to use common patterns, some implementation details are specific to Speedometer and should not be used as a guideline for implementing and deploying a standalone application. For example, due to limitations within the testing program, workloads must not depend on server infrastructure to function properly and are created in advance as static files.”

Speedometer 3.0 was developed over a period of more than a year. “This is the first time that the Speedometer benchmark or any other major browser benchmark has been developed through cross-industry collaboration, supported by all major browser engines: Blink, Gecko and WebKit,” said Firefox developer Brian Grinstead. “Collaboration means we can develop a shared understanding of what matters in optimization and facilitates broad review of the benchmark itself: both of which make it a stronger lever for improving the web as a whole.”
