Precision timing over the web
Inquisit Web uses an app to run tests, giving it access to the high-performance native system components required to
achieve millisecond precision timing. In fact, Inquisit 6 Web uses exactly the same powerful and fast
engine that Inquisit 6 Lab uses. The engine takes just a few seconds to download.
Tests adapt to different devices and form factors
Inquisit is a lightweight, efficient engine that performs well on even the slowest computers still in use today. Inquisit Web automatically adapts
to the device it's running on, scaling visual presentations as needed and using the input modes available (e.g., touch screen, mouse, keyboard). Write your script once and run it on any device.
