    Indeed some do, I don't think it's uncommon. Here are some websites I found on a quick google search for "cpu benchmark" or similar:,2057-18.html,72&tid=13

    I think it would be great to add support for it . I personally don't think people would find it confusing, especially if the results are colour-coded, which already appears to be happening.

    If you think people might find it confusing, then you could perhaps consider making it optional?

      Hi Michael,

      Very nice and very good looking!

      However, my standard complaint is found in the GraphicsMagick benchmark, where the units aren't in multiples of 5, 10, 20, or 25, but rather of 17:

      Please, make sure that the units are in multiples of multiples of 5, 10, 20, or 25 etc.

      Apart from that, very very nice!

        Two things:
        -SVG Graphs: resizing SVG graphics and graphs, in my experience, has not been a good experience with browsers. Indeed, even display can be sort of bad. Please make sure your SVG graphs have a background colour set; looking at a transparent svg graph on a dark grey background is hard. If you can, please also ensure that they scale up well in browsers, or at least render with text large enough that it can be seen. Paying mind to accessibility is important.

        -Interactive graphs: Well if it's interactive, why not allow rearrangement of the results? If someone wants to see the order, then they can click the ordering button. Like a file manager does it.

          A lot more clean looking.
