Sometimes it's all about the aesthetics.


Tokyo Fashion Test | ☆東京著衣☆試驗

Here I propose a test to measure the performance of browser for female online shoppers in Taiwan. I chose Tokyo Fashion (☆東京著衣☆) as the testing website because:

  1. This is one of the largest online shopping site in Taiwan
  2. If a browser performs badly in this medium sized (only 207 image files) shopping webpage, it's not worth it.
Browser Load Time Left text menu width boundary my take
Webkit svn 19569: 11s fair screwed Fast
Linux Firefox fair screwed Fast
Win Firefox 16s fair screwed Fair
MSIE 6.0.2900.2180: 17s fair fair Great
Camino 1.0.3: 23s fair screwed Fair
Safari 2.0.4 (419.3): 53s screwed screwed Forget it.

Note: Safari, Webkit and Camino were tested on an iMac Core Duo while Firefox, MSIE were tested on a PC with low end Pentium 4. Browser caches were flushed before the testing.

This requires more studies to identify the components that have impact on the performance or rendering.
