With the rapid development of the network and the upgrading of mobile phones, all kinds of mobile applications abound. As an entrance for Internet, browser is one of the most commonly used essential tools. Currently, there is a growing intense competition for browser capability. Owing to increased auxiliary function and the continuous upgrading, the increasing browser volume and installation package have brought a great challenge to ROM and RAM for mobile phones. This time we selected 4 commonly used browser to make a comparison from the installation package size, memory usage, CPU usage and traffic usage and other four features relatively close to the user experience. As following:
Comparison of the package size：
we selected this 4 browser for assessment based on the Android platform. Firstly, let's compare the browser volume:
From the above comparison of the browser volume , it is not difficult to find out that Chrome Browser ranked as the first with 41mb, following is Opera Browser with nearly 30mb, UC Browser respectively ranked the third with 17.347MB. KK Browser appears the more compact size with only 1.19MB. Then, we made two tests and three projects to compare the 5 browsers based on the most commonly problems when using mobile phones.
Memory & CPU test:
Download the browser, install on the phone, and then connect to the computer, start the test tools, running the browser, operating all the functions, and using the browser for music and video playing, news reading, picture browsing, file download and online games playing .
Running all the functions on each browser with same operation , such as playing the same songs, watch the same video, download the same size apk, continuous browse the same page pictures, and monitor the use of each traffic of each browser at the same time through the performance testing tools Emmagee
Following the result after these two tests:
We could see that：
（1）For the memory usage, Chrome topped with 41232kb, then is Opera of 50423kb, UC and KK separated ranked the third and fourth with respectively 66324kb and 81203kb.
（2） For the CPU usage, KK browser ranked the first with 8% of occupancy , nearly is Opera with 15% separately, UC and Chrome is the last with a great occupancy of 25%.
（3）then we check for the traffic usage, in the same operation, Opera consume a minimum flow rate with only 31807kb, the second is KK browser with only 42141kb , Chrome and UC is closer, respectively 45789kb and 50124kb.
From the above test data, we can see that each browser has its own characteristics: Chrome ranked the first in memory usage; UC and KK browser lead in occupancy; Opera is a slight advantage in terms of traffic consumption. Under a comprehensive comparison, it is not difficult to find out that most of the mobile browsers take up more memory and consume power faster as the big volume and multi-function. However, KK browser performs well in memory usage ,cpu occupancy, and traffic consuming with a small volume of only 1.2M. Less is more
