If you hadn't guessed based on previous posts, I am fascinated by the process of web browser development, even though I haven't ever really played an active part in it (unless you count working on themes or submitting bugs).

This is why David Hyatt's latest blog entry, Testing Page Load Speed, is so interesting to me.

In his post, David goes into detail about what types of processes are involved with loading a web page, and into even greater detail about the time thresholds involved in ensuring that pages display quickly while at the same time refraining from displaying content before it is ready.

Anyone who is even half as interested in the process as I am should give David's post a read.
