Rightware Extends Its Lead in Web Browser Evaluation Tools

ESPOO, Finland --(Business Wire)--

Rightware proudly announced today the launch of the latest edition of the popular web browser test tool, Browsermark 2.1. Rightware has found, through in-house testing, a consumer could gain as much as 60% better web browsing performance by simply choosing a different browser.

Browsermark is free for consumers to run and check out the browser performance of their Mac, PC, smartphone, tablet or even SmartTV. The consumer is able to evaluate how much more, or less, performance any given optional web browser brings for them by first running the test with the default browser on their device and subsequently running the same test with another browser. Additionally, after each test run, users can easily compare what other browsers have scored in the Power Board database where there are performance results of over 3,500 different devices.

"Since the launch of the original Browsermark over 4 years ago, this test has been adopted in an unprecedented way by consumers, media, browser companies, device manufacturers and processor companies," said Tero Sarkkinen, General Manager Benchmark Business. "With this latest installment, we continue to lead the industry and give more and more value to our licensees and conumers."
