Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Selenium

Benchmark: Speedometer - Browser: Google Chrome

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 1,478 public results since 13 March 2019 with the latest data as of 1 October 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
