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 DragonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Call(http://dc.gamedp.com), the Java-based Runescape(http://runescape.com) and the Flash-based Evony(http://evony.com).
1. Test the loading speed of each gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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: www.webwait.com (itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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
- 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 DragonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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.
