Today, we are pleased to introduce MotionMark, a new graphics
benchmark for web browsers.
We’ve seen the web grow in amazing ways, making it a rich platform
capable of running complex web apps, rendering beautiful web
pages, and providing user experiences that are fast, responsive,
and visibly smooth. With the development and wide adoption of web
standards like CSS animations, SVG, and HTML5 canvas, it’s easier
than ever for a web author to create an engaging and sophisticated
experience. Since these technologies rely on the performance of
the browser’s graphics system, we created this benchmark to put it
to the test.
We’d like to talk about how the benchmark works, how it has
helped us improve the performance of WebKit, and what’s in store
for the future.
Some of the tests are pretty enough to be screensavers.
