Measuring screen load times in chrome
I am hoping someone will be able to point me in the right direction.
I am looking for a click by click recording tool that measures screen load times in a web app using chrome as the browser, The aim is for me to navigate around the site catching the load times of pages.
Has anyone done this before?
That problem is pretty hard to define. let alone measure.
At what point are you considering the program loaded? and what are you measuring?
* at the point...Loading all data (like stuff coming in from jsonp or ajax requests)
* at the point... where user can interact with elements on the page?
* at the point...Rendering elements on the dom
* at the point...Elements start appearing on the screen
* at the point...Completed animations and transition states (for example, elements sliding into view)
* at the point...Rendering of non-interstitial elements. (say your app has a loading screen)
* at the point...That all controls are responsive.
I think for the most part is defining what that really means, and how to measure it
Google has a PageSpeed tool that is supposed to reflect what is used in their search rankings(speed is a factor). It's a Chrome extension. https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/ There is also Yahoo's YSlow which you can setup a server for to log results over time.
