I was hoping to hold off on this release for another week or two, while I finished up some final details, but since it’s been discovered, and about to hit the Digg front page, there isn’t a whole lot that I can do to stop it.
There’s a ton of details concerning how it works, and how to use it, on the Dromaeo wiki page. I won’t go through too much of it here, but it should clarify most question there.
Right now I’m working very closely with all the browser vendors to make sure that we have a common-ground test suite that is both highly usable and statistically sound (not to mention providing results that are universally interesting). There are a number of outstanding concerns that’ve been raised by users of the suite, along with a number of concerns that’ve already been rectified – again, all of this is clarified on the Dromaeo wiki page. It’s of the utmost concern that this suite be as applicable as possible. It’s very likely that the core suite will be moving to a common working ground where all browser vendors can work on it.
I especially want to thank Allan Branch of LessEverything who provided the awesome design for the site. It’s like he tapped into my brain and produced exactly what I wanted – without knowing even it. I highly recommend them, if you have design work that needs to be done.
