Test Targets: the top 3 browsers with the biggest market share, namely, IE, Firefox and Chrome
Test Games: We selected three popular games of different genres, the PHP-based Dragon’s Call(Dragon's Call Official Site
), the Java-based Runescape(RuneScape - The Number 1 Free Multiplayer Game
) and the Flash-based Evony(Evony-Free forever
1. Test the loading speed of each game’s official site: before testing, we cleared all the history, caches and cookies of three browsers and kept all settings of them basically the same.
Test Tool: WebWait - Benchmark Your Website
(it’s the most popular website loading speed test site)
Test Method: loaded the pages for consecutive five times every five seconds
2. Resource usage of each browser during gameplay
1) Resource usage of each browser during gameplay
2. Resource usage while auto-fighting and browsing other sites (official site, facebook, twitter and google) simultaneously
Tested Runescape and Evony in the same way.
Firefox is fit for the PHP-based Dragon’s Call since its CPU and RAM usage in Firefox is smaller than IE and Chrome, especially during auto-fighting.
IE is fit for the Java-based Runescape.
Chrome is fit for the Flash-based Evony.
