Page Speed Benchmarks

Page speed has a huge impact on user experience. Faster sites have been proven to have lower bounce rates, higher conversion rates, bigger shopping cart sizes, and happier users. In these dashboards, we rank industry-leading websites based on how fast their pages appear to load, from a user’s perspective. For each site, click through to see their detailed test results.

Desktop Fast - Tested every day in Chrome with a fast connection (80Mbps/40Mbps 10ms RTT). Sites are sorted by Start Render which is when the first non-white content is painted in the browser.
