New HTML5 demo / performance test

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hi all,

Here's a beefed up and fullscreen version of the Ghost Shooter demo: (man, just can't get enough of ghosts and shootin')
http://www.scirra.com/labs/ghostshooterfullscreen/

I'm interested in framerates both restored and with the window maximized for Firefox 5 and Internet Explorer 9 on your machines, if you have them don't mind a quick test. (You can also hit F11 to go fullscreen on most browsers.) I believe both browsers should have pretty good hardware acceleration and so should run 30+ fps, hopefully! Right now I think all other browsers would struggle with it.

Let me know your results. I get 50-60fps on IE9 always, and only about 14fps on FF5 (because they blacklisted my driver so I don't get hardware acceleration).Ashley2011-06-29 02:24:45

59-61 fps all the time. Fullscreen and normal window on IE9.
Don't have any other browsers to test.

Gave up on my laptop and tried my desktop with a real video card.

Both FF5 and IE9 held 60 fps.

Might be useful if people post their specs also - especially CPU, GFX and OS.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Very interesting. It's running around 60fps in both FFOX 5 and IE 9. Opera plummets to 12fps.

The performance results seem similar to an older test I did comparing HTML5 speed of all major browsers. IE9 still appears to be ahead of the bunch, while FFOX5 apparently can keep up with certain examples.

What's interesting is that Chrome only manages ~22fps with this fullscreen example, while it was clearly the second best after IE9 in my earlier test. Maybe it can't handle fullscreen and/or scrolling so well.

Oh, my specs:
X4 640 3.0Ghz
4GB DDR2
1024mb Radeon 6850 OC
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Right now I think performance is mostly whether or not the browser has hardware acceleration, rather than your hardware. I think right now Chrome is still using a software renderer, so it will always be slow - they're working on hardware acceleration AFAIK.
