  6. 6. Materials and Procedure (may not work on all Windows PCs) Materials: (HP Pavilion w/ Windows Vista SP2 PC Requirements:) Web Browsers, Camtasia Studio (or any high-frames video studio), Adobe Premiere Pro (or Premiere Elements/Windows Movie Maker), and an internet connection Procedures: 1.

Wait for it to completely load. The head back to Camtasia Studio and click “stop”. Then save the file as an HQ AVI. 5. Open Adobe Premiere Pro 6. Open the recorded file and trim it into frames you need (from pressing the go button to the time the progress bar disappears or when the has completely loaded) 7.

  13. 13. Results As I did this experiment, I noticed that Google Chrome had been faster than any other browser (Although Wyzo was the fastest, it is in alpha and it’s very unstable-it crashed 30+times when I tested the browsers)
  14. 14. Conclusion • During this experiment, I tested 10 browsers to see which one is the fastest during this experiment. I learned how to measure browser speed. • My results from my experiment proved my hypothesis right. Problems that may have affected my experiment is that too many people may be on YouTube when it I tested Internet Explorer, since it took 5 seconds to load. • Another discovery that was made is that not all pages load at the same time. • Because I think that I did everything correctly and the results were pretty accurate, the experiment went very well.
