Basemark Web 3.0

Web Browser Performance Testing Tool

Cross-Platform Benchmarking Tool

Basemark Web 3.0 is a comprehensive web browser performance benchmark that tests how well your mobile or desktop system can use web based applications. This benchmark includes various system and graphic tests that use the web recommendations and features. After running the benchmark you will see how your system performed compared to other systems and browsers in Basemark Power Board. Basemark Web 3.0 measures real-world client-side performance to detect browser bottlenecks.



Basemark Web 3.0 is a hardware- and platform-independent, supporting virtually all modern browsers, operating systems, and mobile or desktop systems.

Web 3.0 Features

  • Low-level JavaScript calculations (ECMAScript), designed to test the core of JavaScript
  • Graphically intense content, e.g. WebGL 2.0, that uses mainly GPU of the device
  • Tests built with popular JavaScript frameworks (e.g. jQuery, Angular, and Backbone), and Document Object Model (DOM), as well as popular CSS features
  • Basemark Web 3.0 will also contain a Conformance Suite, which doesn’t contribute to overall score, but tests the browser’s conformance.

Basemark has a long history in creating industry-leading benchmarks for mobile devices, virtual reality systems and browsers. Basemark Web 3.0 is a major milestone in developing trustworthy benchmarks for modern browsers, including WebGL.

Battery tests
turns battery test ON

Basemark Web 3.0 will loop all tests until device battery is exhausted or user/operating system terminates the browser. When the battery test mode is turned on, the console will have inside current configuration line

Battery: ON, Results URL:<UID_generated_by_Basemark_Web_3.0>

NOTE: This URL needs to be saved, because that is only way to access Battery run results after battery is exhausted!
turns the battery test OFF (default)

Running the test – starts testing.

Parameters “battery”, “conformance”, and “suite” can be combined in one URL call using “&” as a separator.

For example, resetting Basemark Web 3.0 to defaults can be done via URL:
