Web browser "GPU memory usage" tester
July 31, 2016

Each 'Run' in this test should finish in around one second. All 80 runs should complete in under 80 seconds. ALL major web browsers easily pass the test, except for 32-bit Chrome (51.0.2704.103; and Opera, which uses the Chrome engine) which slows to an excruciating crawl (but only with GPU accelerated canvas), and then eventually crashes and burns with an "Aw, Snap!" message. Chrome bug report (confirmed to be an 'out of memory' problem due to a garbage collection problem). UPDATE Aug 2017: Firefox now suffers from an unknown performance regression.
