Welcome to WebVizBench
We've created this experience to let music aficionados explore historical airplay data from KEXP.org in Seattle while putting HTML5's newest features to the test. Browse the past decade of playlists or use the benchmark mode to test your system's performance. A fast computer with a GPU and Internet Explorer 9 are recommended for best performance.

the html5 benchmark
The benchmark will generate a score based on your computer's hardware. For best results, please close all other applications and browser windows/tabs first and do not resize the browser or use your keyboard/mouse while the benchmark is running. Please set your browser to the desired window size before starting. The benchmark will take several minutes to complete.
Note that the benchmark is a beta, as we are still optimizing the test to best reflect the performance of the underlying hardware. Stay tuned for future updates.
