Acid3 test, perhaps?

Try Googling for "browser benchmarks".

It depends. Acid3 (and predecessors...go on, see if you can guess what they were called) are basically rendering tests. So, they test the browser's ability to render. They don't test other aspects of the browser's behaviour or performance, or at least, not at all directly.

So, is that what you wanted?
