I've always taken performance seriously so this statistic was pretty cool to learn about. Google has added a new section to their Webmaster Tools called "Site Performance." The stats here are gathered by users who have the Google toolbar. And here's what they have to say about regexhero.net : Performance overview On average, pages in your site take 0.7 seconds to load (updated on Dec 9, 2009). This is faster than 94% of sites. The chart below shows how your site's average page load time has changed over the last few months. For your reference, it also shows the 20th percentile value across all sites, separating slow and fast load times. Not bad. The funny thing is that I know there's still room for improvement. The blog actually has a lot of elements in it from blogger that all add to the latency time. At some point I'll be switching to something like Umbraco or Orchard and I should be able to improve this.
