It's a whole-browser-engine benchmark that various people are starting to look at.  Relevant technical claims about it from are:

Browsermark measures browser performance by executing a variety of carefully studied tests in the browser. Browsermark scores are not influenced by Internet connection speed or latency.

Browsermark takes 4 minutes to run during which time it evaluate the browser’s performance with a rendering test, WebGl test, HTML5 video test, HTML5 web worker test, data manipulation tests, DOM operations test and text parsing tests.

Browsermark scores are in operations per second. When a browser (A) scores twice as much as another browser (B) on the same device it means that for a given test either:

* Browser A ran twice as many operations as browser B in the same time period
* Or browser A ran the test in half the time as browser B

I only heard about it today, don't know anything about it or its quality, just heard claims that we're slower on it than some other browsers/engines in some situations.
