Futuremark disposes of Peacekeeper browser benchmark with Windows 10

As seen in a recently issued press release, Futuremark has decided to discontinue Peacekeeper, its browser benchmark tool, with the close release of Windows 10.




Set out to measure JavaScript performance, Futuremark reports that over 7.5 million people have used Peacekeeper to test their browsers and mobile devices since 2009, but further explain that the competition between browsers has now switched focus towards features on offer, rather than raw speed.


Claiming browser speeds today to be a trivial issue, Futuremark explains that the discontinuance of Peacekeeper is only logical to them. Although it is no longer supported, you may still download, use and view saved results here.
