Browserscope is a web service to profile the web browser used to access the website and compare the results against web browsers from other users who have tested theirs on the site as well. The service tests various functions that are divided into the categories security, rich text, selector apis, network and acid 3. All of the categories except the Acid 3 test test multiple features.
The profile creation takes some time but the individual tests complete very fast so that it becomes difficulty to read the test descriptions on the pages that are automatically loaded.
The profile of the web browser is then displayed next to the top browsers that have been used to complete the test before. Browserscope displays the name of the web browser and its version, the number of tests performed with that web browser on the site and the results for the individual modules that have been tested.
Green modules indicate passed tests while red ones failed tests. The overall score is displayed next to the name of the browser. Google Chrome 5 is for instance leading the security test with 12 out of 13 tests passed. Firefox 3.6 passed nine, Internet Explorer 8 eight and Opera 10.50 seven.
Google Chrome is also leading the rich text category, Opera the selectors category, Firefox the network tests and Google Chrome and Opera the Acid 3 test with a perfect score.
Visit Browserscope to test your web browser and see how it fares against the other browsers.
