Futuremark has unveiled a new benchmark named Peacekeeper, this online tool measures the performance of your web browser. You can bench your browser over here.
The name "Peacekeeper" is inspired by the well established concept of "browser wars". The fact is that competition between browsers has never been as hotly contested, nor have internet users had as many choices as they do now. The big five: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera, all see regular releases of new and innovative features and each camp’s followers keep many a forum busy with heated discussion and opinion. Until now, words were the only shots fired in the long-running browser wars. With Peacekeeper however, web users finally have an easy to use tool for measuring and comparing the performance of different web browsers. Just like a real peacekeeping force, the Peacekeeper benchmark is impartial, objective and seeks to resolve conflict. For PC users who prioritize speed and performance, Peacekeeper helps answer the question of which browser is best.
