Benchmarking for the Web Community Group

As web "applications" become more complex, it is felt that not only conformance but also performance of software is at issue. This is especially true for those on embedded systems such as mobile terminals. This CG will discuss how to assess performance characteristics of web browsers and web applications and how to provide a method of comparing the performance of various subsystems across different web systems. The group will deliver guidelines on these issues.

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2014-12-17 by Masahito Kawamori. The following people supported its creation: Masahito Kawamori, Ryoichi Kawada, Futomi Hatano, Shinsuke Matsuki, Chihiro TSUJIMURA. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.
