Peacekeeper - www.futuremark.com/peacekeeper - is a free online tool for measuring and comparing the performance of internet browsers. Many websites, such as social networks, video sharing communities and webmail services, place a heavy load on the web browser. For people who use these sites a lot, changing browsers to one that performs faster can make a dramatic difference.
Jukka Mäkinen, Head of PC Products and Services at Futuremark, said, "People have more choice now in how they experience the internet than ever before but most seem content to stick with the browser they have. It's surprising that even though cost isn't an issue, the browsers that offer the best performance are also the least popular, at least for now."
He went on to add, "We're finding that Peacekeeper is driving people to try browsers they may not have considered before. Our data suggest that Chrome is benefitting most from a combination of strong Peacekeeper performance scores and features that people seem to like."
