Web browsing tests

Load real pages from real websites to assess browsing performance that users would actually see in their homes rather than to a centralised test server.

Website Performance Test

This test uses a full headless web browser to accurately capture the user experience of browsing a website from within a user’s network. The measurements are based on what is observable on the screen, the goal is to highlight how much waiting time is needed for a user to be able to start accessing content on the page.

Web browsing lite

Measures the time taken to fetch the HTML and referenced resources from a page of a popular website. This test does not test against centralised testing nodes; instead it tests against real websites, allowing for content distribution networks and other performance enhancing factors to be considered.
