WebSite Test results - Request Canceled for css and js - artuser - 03-07-2013 12:44 PM

Hi,

We are running tests for our website.

URL for the results:
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/130306_C4_1EM4/2/details/

In the results, we see couple of css and js shows as request canceled(Items: 2,3,4). Why does this happen ?

Thanks,
Sandhya

Eric Lawrence had a great article on it as part of the IE Blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ieinternals/archive/2011/07/18/optimal-html-head-ordering-to-avoid-parser-restarts-redownloads-and-improve-performance.aspx

Basically, IE's parser is having to restart because of something it encountered on the page.
