order of downloads - sgoudelis - 09-10-2010 10:12 PM


I would like to ask why do I see a different order of downloads in the waterfall view compared with the order I see locally on my IE7. Locally the order is nearly identical to the order in which assets are included in the page.

Thank you

My guess would be that it has something to do with the speed and latency of your local connection vs. the WebPagetest testers with the higher-latency introducing timing changes in how the page loads.

Are all of the resources from the same domain and of the same type (i.e. images)?

Did you test at webpagetest with IE7 as well? Or was it an IE8 run?
If this is the case, you might see a different order due to this:
Taming IE 8 download order.

Kind regards,
