Excellent tool. I ran it on our home page at http://www.lagunabeachbikini.com
Here is the results: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/100302_5JYM/
When I look at the waterfall in detail, I see that it took 6.322s to Start Render.
First there is about a 2 second Time To First Byte for the main page.
One file doesn’t start until the other finishes. Why do they all have to occur serially?
Also, I don’t know if Keep-Alive is turned on. Would that eliminate the Initial Connection latency (orange)? How to turn on Keep-Alive when webhost is Yahoo webhosting. I don’t think I can modify an Apache config file or anything. I only have ftp access to the host computer.
I would like to at least get to the green line (Time to First Byte) quicker.
