Load Time - is its definition changed or calculated differently? - woshibt - 10-22-2019 06:49 AM

Hi,

I am seeing that the metrics "Load Time" offsets a lot for our homepage comparing the waterfall on July 9th to that on October 18th. Is it a recent definition and calculation change, or some issue in our page or even WPT?

Noticed that the "loadEvent" timing looks pretty consistent in the two different tests.

Here's an example.
