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 Dragon’s Call(http://dc.gamedp.com), the Java-based Runescape(http://runescape.com) and the Flash-based Evony(http://evony.com).

Test Procedures:
1. Test the loading speed of each game’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 (it’s the most popular website loading speed test site)

Test Method: loaded the pages for consecutive five times every five seconds

Results:

2. Resource usage of each browser during gameplay

Dragon’s Call:

Evony:

In Summary:
Firefox is fit for the PHP-based Dragon’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.
