Inline JavaScript Experiment

Inline JavaScript Experiment
Hey Guys,

I would say most websites have a bit of JavaScript in their header section. I setup an experiment to see which of the following exhibits would process faster:

Exhibit A

Code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.green-watch.org/javascript/siteJavascript.cfm"></script>

Exhibit B

Code:
<script type="text/javascript">

// ]]>
</script>

All resources on the page were exactly the same so the only change was the two code blocks above. The code attached in Exhibit A matches the code block in Exhibit B.

Test Results:

Exhibit A
---------
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/100709_1445/
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/100709_144E/

Exhibit B
---------
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/100709_143X/
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/100709_1443/

The test results showed that the inline JavaScript in Exhibit B resulted in a faster page speed both first view and repeat view.

I figure the difference in execution time would be the time to first byte for the included JavaScript. In Exhibit B, you do not have that look up time.

The blocking of JavaScript is due to the execution of the JavaScript and not necessarily how it is included correct?

If you have to include a script that blocks other downloads, why not include it inline as opposed to fetching it with src?

Some people may argue that code changes are easier to update. However, with dynamic scripting languages such as coldfusion, you can just include a template that will allow JavaScript changes in one location.

How would having the inline JavaScript at the top effect website crawlers such as Google? Would Google look past all the JavaScript?

Any thoughts or comments?

Sincerely,
Travis Walters
