Methodology

The Web browsers, operating systems, drivers, and other supporting apps were fully updated as of midnight on September 26, 2012 (Eastern Daylight Time). Screensaver and power management options are disabled in each operating system before testing.

Per the original RoboHornet homepage, each browser is tested with no other tabs or applications open. Due to the much shorter duration of RoboHornet Pro, our charts contain the average of five iterations.
