Please elaborate on "Bytes In"
The quick start guide defines Bytes In as
Quote:This is the amount of data that the browser had to download in order to load the page. It is also commonly referred to as the "Page Size".

I found a comment by Patrick Meenan which seems to be a little more definitive:
Quote: The "bytes in" (overall) measures at the socket level and is guaranteed to be the number of bytes that came in over the wire (even if there was a problem with reporting individual requests)

But some elaboration would be helpful.
I believe "bytes in" would include all the overhead of SSL encryption, at least from my experiments, but does it include TCP overhead, etc?

Oh and thanks for the very powerful WebPageTest tool!
