This session is about presenting the current state of performance in web browsers on ARM, and then deciding on how to implement benchmarking/validation for browsers so that performance can be quantified and tracked.
No user visible changes.
Browser performance is of increasing importance due to more and more applications moving to the browser. For example, we now have an office suite packaged for Ubuntu that uses Zoho in a browser instead of a heavier client-side application. The emphasis on browser performance is especially true on ARM devices where memory and cache are often more limited, and since ARM processors are often targeted at consumer devices such as netbooks and phones.
There are three major areas that should be measured and addressed for performance benchmarks:
- Browser load time
- Page load performance
