Futuremark Corporation today unveiled Peacekeeper, a free online benchmarking tool for measuring and comparing the performance of common internet browsers. 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, see regular releases of new and innovative features and each camp’s fans keep many a forum and blog busy. So far, words have been the only shots fired in the long-running browser wars. Now, with Peacekeeper web users finally have an easy to use, impartial tool for measuring and comparing the performance of different web browsers. Peacekeeper is a new online benchmark from Futuremark that realistically simulates the load placed on the browser by common JavaScript functions as used by popular, modern websites. For users who prioritize speed and performance, Peacekeeper helps answer the question of which browser is best for them.

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 they may not realize that performance between browsers can vary dramatically, especially on lower-end PCs. With Peacekeeper, it’s simple to compare different browsers and see which one offers the best performance on your PC."

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 visiting those sites more fun, with less waiting for pages to load and display correctly. Peacekeeper makes that choice easier than ever.

Web users can run Peacekeeper now by visiting http://www.futuremark.com/peacekeeper

Thats a huge difference.

Identical results.

I've always known Chrome seemed more peppy to me. Hmmm...wonder how accurate this is..considering IE gets the lowest, it can't be to far from accurate

I got ~1000 with Chrome.

Now the 920 seems to be losing to the e8400 in that chart..?

EDIT: Results so far with my sig rig:



Is safari REALLY that bad, or is it just the 'OMG I HAET APPLE' bullcrap?

So, Is anyone else switching to safari now? Safari clearly beat other browsers on my system, AND I sabotaged the safari score by browsing with Google Chrome at the same time as the test, lol
