View Full Version : The new Peacekeeper test...

Something is fishy with their new testing system: http://peacekeeper.futuremark.com (try their new beta testing system)

1. The blue physics colliding balls are now dandelions and pieces of grass. This taxes all other browsers besides Chrome more easily due to the complex imagery.

2. One of the tests requires H.264 codec, which Firefox does not have (nor anything else but Chrome, it seems?)

This means Chrome will continue taking the throne forever. Nice work, catering to one browser over the other.

Firefox 10.0a1: 1851
HTML5 Capabilities 5/6

Also, you no longer can auto-save the result to their server it seems, you need to login, and you have to have facebook to login, just like Spotify now.

The test will also cater to Internet Explorer less, as it tests for both Theora and WebM.

On another note, Firefox 10.0a1 still only scores 314 (plus 9 bonus points) on the HTML5 tests: http://html5test.com/

I was hoping they'd at least implement web notifications by now.
