Rightware® Unveils the Industry's Most Disruptive Benchmark - Browsermark® 2.0
ESPOO, Finland --(Business Wire)--
Rightware, the leader in embedded user interface (UI) technologies and
benchmarking software tools, today introduced Browsermark 2.0 - a free
to use benchmark designed from the ground up to measure and compare the
performance of any browser on any internet enabled device including
desktops, notebooks, tablets, smartphones and more.
In addition to measuring general browsing functionality tests like page
loading, page resizing and conformance testing for HTML5 and network
speed, Browsermark 2.0 also features 4 new areas of testing: WebGL,
Canvas, HTML5, and CSS3/3D.
"We are all frustrated with the performance of our browser, based on the
device we are web browsing on, and continually ask, 'Am I expecting too
much from my tablet '" said Tero Sarkkinen, CEO of Rightware.
"Browsermark answers that question for you! This simple-to-run test will
help you decide which browser provides the best web experience for your
device. In addition to measuring your own device, consumers can check
out the latest results of many devices in our Power Board online
database. We believe these two technologies will help to improve the
user experience on every device."
For years, Browsermark has been considered the gold standard technology
in performance measurement. The software was designed to measure the
many more. Browsermark provides the de facto benchmark approach to
measure a variety of different performance aspects of a device's
browsing capabilities, functionality and speed. Easily understood
results are then provided for easy comparison of different device
All of the data will be uploaded to Rightware's Power Board oline
database. Power Board gathers and maintains all of the official
benchmarking data from all of the company's benchmarking tools. Power
Board allows access to benchmarking data of graphics, system, multicore,
browser and user interface performance of various devices which are
running different operating systems and hardware.
Rightware is the provider of the world's most widely adopted
benchmarking software for mobile and tablet devices and automotive
systems. Rightware's famous Basemark products are developed within the
industry's most impartial and transparent benchmark development program.
This program was done in close cooperation with leading mobile phone
manufacturers, semiconductor companies and operators to ensure the most
reliable and objective benchmark products.
Information for Editors and Benchmarkers
Browsermark measures browser performance by executing a variety of
carefully studied tests in the browser; Browsermark scores are not
influenced by Internet connection speed or latency.
Browsermark takes 4 minutes to run during which time it evaluates the
browser's performance with the following tests: rendering, WebGl, HTML5
video, HTML5 web worker, data manipulation, DOM operations and text
Browsermark scores are in operations per second. When a browser (A)
scores twice as much as another browser (B) on the same device it means
that for a given test either:
Browser A ran twice as many operations as browser B in the same time
Browser A ran the test in half the time as browser B
By choosing a browser with a high Browsermark score, you are ensuring a
faster and smoother web experience within the limitations of your
Internet connection speed. When choosing between several devices, such
as tablets or smart-phones, a higher Browsermark score in one device
indicates a more powerful and faster CPU and GPU than in a lower scoring
