What would be a fair real world test that would be a useful measure of a website's speed ? How about this ... Measure would be count the number of seconds until you could complete this: (1) go to a forum. (2) click a thread. (3) post in the thread (4) edit the post (5) save it Would that be fair ? Any better tests ? besides things like webpagetest.org ? I want the test to distinguish a fast site from a slow site. Should I include search ?
