How is the "Fully Loaded" time measured?

RE: How is the "Fully Loaded" time measured?
Yes, it is specific to WebPagetest (well, technically to Pagetest which is the browser plugin that does all of the measuring).

As far as the actual mechanics go, the test agents don't talk back to the server during testing. The server basically takes your test request, adds it to the queue for the given location and receives the test results when the agent finishes the testing. The test agents themselves launch the browser, capture all of the timings and measurements and then batch the results up to send back to the server. The "fully loaded" time is just one of the measurements that it sends back with the results. That is why you don't get a whole lot of feedback about the progress of your test until the testing is actually done.
