Browser Warz-Part 3: Things just got interesting.

In all of the previous Browser Warz competitions, there were only 4 competitors.  Now, there are 26.  Now, I hope you’re thinking “26 browsers on one computer? This guy must be crazy!”, because I am.

However, unlike the other Browser Warz competitions, the browsers in this competition will be facing other versions of their own kind before going on to face the winners of each individual competition.

There are 4 things that the browsers will be scored on in this leg of the competition:

  • CSS errors (Is the purple header there?  Does the body of the page match up with the header?  Is the footer matching?  Are the horizontal rules hidden?)
  • JavaScript errors (Are there any?  How bad are they?)
  • Speed of the 3 tests (How fast were each of the three tests?  How long did it take 5 repeats of each test to occur?)
  • Total time taken on the tests (How many seconds did it take?)

The 26 browsers are split up into 5 categories:

  • Internet Explorer icon for Browser Warz Internet Explorer (7 browsers, page 2)
  • Firefox icon for Browser Warz Firefox (4 browsers, page 3)
  • Opera icon for Browser Warz Opera (6 browsers, page 4)
  • Netscape icon for Browser Warz Netscape (7 browsers, page 5)
  • “Other” icon for Browser WarzOther (2 browsers, page 6)

This competition, because it is so long, is divided into pages to reduce loading time.

  1. Well, that post was very long. However, it was interesting and I learned about the many web browsers, so I don’t feel as if I was just locked in a room with a boring college proffesor ramblingon about whatever. This version of browser wars ROCKS!

  2. I’m amazed that there are so many different browsers! Some of them can’t handle much, which is surprising. It’s encouraging, though, that newer versions often do better.

    What’s in store for BW4? Can’t wait to learn more…or was BW3 all for now?
