We rely on web-connected devices to check movie times, figure out where to eat, and communicate with our friends and family. But there are thousands of devices to choose from, all claiming that they have great web browsing capabilities. How can you tell how good these devices really are?
WebXPRT is the answer: a free online tool that gives you objective information about how well a laptop, tablet, smartphone, or any other web-enabled device handles common web tasks. By running a simple test on your device at WebXPRT.com, you can get a score that makes it easy to compare your device against others on the WebXPRT website. Or just check out results from a variety of laptops, tablets, and phones at WebXPRT.com.
WebXPRT is one of the BenchmarkXPRT benchmarks, a set of free, easy-to-use tools that help you learn how all kinds of devices perform.
A benchmark, in this case, is a tool designed to test a wide range of devices on a level playing field. When you look at results from BenchmarkXPRT benchmarks, you get unbiased, fair product comparisons.
WebXPRT tells you how well any connected device handles both common and advanced web-browsing tools. To do this, WebXPRT runs six online tests that simulate the kinds of things you do online every day. It measures how long (in milliseconds) your device takes to complete each of those tasks. Then it uses those times to calculate a single-number overall score, which you can use to compare your device against others at WebXPRT.com.
It’s easy – no download required!
WebXPRT will run each of its six tests seven times. The line of dashes at the top of the screen lets you keep track of the benchmark’s progress. WebXPRT also displays the ratio of completed workloads and completion percentage in the upper right-hand corner. While it’s running, try not to touch or click the screen; this won’t hurt your device, but it might affect the results. When you see a check mark and the words “All Done!” the test is finished. The score in the Your Score circle is all you need to compare your device against others at WebXPRT.com. If you’re interested, however, you can also scroll down to see how fast your device completed each individual task.
It runs these six tests seven times each:

Yes. WebXPRT tests the capabilities of your device/browser combination. We recommend you run the test on the browser you use most often. That said, WebXPRT is also a great way to test the speed of several different browsers and see which browser/device combination is fastest.
No. It may cause the test to take longer to complete, but WebXPRT doesn’t need a perfect Internet connection.
