Mozilla Testcase for DHMTL Performance

It started 2003 as a little project to learn the basics of 3D-programming and with a question on how to improve performance in the mozillaZine Forums. I was asked to file a bug (Bug 229391) and to create the Mozilla Testcase Slow (3D) DHTML performance compared to IE for it . From there it made it into the performance suites Dromaeo, SunSpider and The Betanews Comprehensive Relative Performance Index (CRPI) to measure browser speed.

The test is also mentioned in the article “Surf-Triathlon – Geschwindigkeit und Speicherverbrauch aktueller Browser” in the German computer magazine c’t from 19/2008 on page 182.
