It is a cool way to see how each browser responds on different system, Hopefully we will see each of the browsers fight for the top spot. It can only mean a better browser for all of us. Whatever you're particular browser choice is.
|While probably working on 3DMark Vantage's successor, Futuremark has decided to expand its online reach and launch the Peacekeeper browser benchmark. Available here in beta form, Peacekeeper will test out browsers to point out which one delivers the best performance on your system.|
The five tests conducted are data structures, DOM (Document Object Model) operations, text parsing, rendering, and 'real life example', and they will give out a score, the higher the better, of course. From Peacekeeper's statistics Safari 4.0 (beta) is the fastest thing around, coring 2264 points on a Core i7 system, followed by Chrome 1.0 and Opera 9.6. Interestingly-enough, the most popular browser tested is Firefox (3.0.6), followed by Chrome 1.0 and Opera 9.63. Internet Explorer 7 is on fourth. Enough statistics, let's see your scores.

its called Acid3 Test. And rather than just coming up with a numeric value for overall performance, it tells you how well your browser conforms to web standards.

You don't have to try and sell it like it's the same better than Peacekeeper. They're two totally different tests.
