Website speedtest (the sequel) // Measuring page load time once again

Published by Mr. C

Digging through the archives, Christine found an old video comparison we created to compare page load times between this site and a number of others.

Back in 2010 sidepodcast.com fared well against the competition with a completion time of approximately three seconds. For fun we recreated the test to see if we have improved at all.

Turns out technology has advanced rapidly in the past six years and Sidepodcast's homepage now loads in just 1.4 seconds. Not a bad improvement at all. Other sites have developed similarly with Autosport dropping from a massive 23 second load time down to nine and a half seconds today.

We should try the same experiment in another half decade or so. Maybe by then we can get the site to load before you even open it.
