Browser Render Time - Gurus Please Reply
I am looking for a tool that could measure the Browser Render time for various actions. This is to supplement the load test tool LoadRunner. LoadRunner captures the http response download time but doesn't capture the time taken by the Browser to render and fully load the page.
I am thinking of using Selenium but my impression is that Selenium uses DOM so the concern is that Selenium may find the existence of a object even before Browser has fully rendered/loaded a page.
Please share your thoughts.
Going to raise this old thread from the dead, because I'm in the same boat, is there a way to have Selenium Webdriver report back the page render time / time to user interactivity instead of the full page load time?
Currently my Selenium scripts are only reporting back full page load time, but manual testing shows that the customer is able to view and interact with the page much sooner than the full page load.
Thoughts on the best way to accomplish this?
It's out of scope for selenium. You might want to use something like compuware or gomez to do performance testing.

You can enable FireBug in Firefox. At the end of the suite, analyze the HTML archive..
