Thanks for the details on the test, Remah, explains a lot.

I guess that they should mention clearly on the benchmark page that this tests the javascript capabilities mainly. Calling it a universal browser test does not make sense when they do not provide such a simple detail. It's misleading IMO.

Anyways, once again, I wouldn't choose a browser based on this test, simply because it's just focusing on javascript capabilities and that too influenced by the system it's running on.

One reason that I like Peacekeeper is unrelated to the benchmark score.

The use of visual tests and different video codecs can stress a low-end system. So if you watch the screen while it is running then you can see sometimes visual artefacts and stuttering in the videos. This varies by browser and can be helpful in determining which is more efficient.

Personally, I also like tests where you can see something happening.
