Here's a confession: we have a soft spot in our hearts for Futuremark. We used their benchmarking tools
religiously to test out new products, and overall, it all works great. Rightware was recently spun off from Futuremark, and today they're launching a much-needed new benchmarking service for mobile and embedded device browsing performance. Ever wanted to compare browsing performance between the iPhone, Nexus One, Wii, iPad and/or PS3? Now you can.
The new tool is called BrowserMark, and it's available in two versions. The free version does enough for most consumers who are just curious, while the corporate version enables device manufacturers to evaluate and choose better performing browsers for their products. And if you want to try it out today, you can. Just head to the download link noted in the full press announcement below and run a few tests of your own. You may be surprised at what you find out.
Rightware Debuts BrowserMark
Consumers will benefit from new information revealing substantial
performance differences between different browsers
Espoo, Finland - April 14, 2010. Rightware extends its benchmarking software
coverage to mobile and embedded device web browsers by today's launch of
BrowserMarkT. Rightware offers two versions of the product. Consumers can
check which browser is the best for them with the free version of the
benchmark, whereas the corporate version enables device manufacturers to
evaluate and choose better performing browsers for their products.
Consumers, as well as independent media and analysts, can immediately run
the test and see which browser performs the best with various devices. In
its internal testing, Rightware has determined that substantial performance
differences exist between different browsers for one and same device.
Consumers are advised to consider switching to faster performing browsers as
they can gain significant power saving benefits and obtain a better usage
experience. Rightware's BrowserMarkT is an independent and trustworthy guide
for them in this task.
"Given the exponentially increasing usage of internet via cell phones and
other handheld devices, we knew that the world needed an objective
performance comparison tool" says Tero Sarkkinen, CEO of Rightware. "With
BrowserMark, we're helping the industry develop better performing browsers
for their devices. Consumers reap the benefits in the form of more efficient
browsers that provide faster browsing experience."
BrowserMarkT is available immediately. To try the free version, simply visit

Companies interested in licensing the corporate version for advanced test
results, as well as private benchmark results database, are asked to send an
