Measure complete page load time looking for a simple tool Slud
I'm looking to benchmark the complete load times for a couple of pages (total time elapsed from request to page load) on a site.
I was using "time lynx -dump [
...] for awhile, but this seems to have stopped handling cookies in the right way. mysite.com
Opera looks like it could do the job, but the status bar disappears once the page is done loading. Any suggestions?
(answering my own post)
I switched to using wget and the "timethis.exe" utility from the Windows 2000 resource kit.
I have the W3-dev menu installed for Opera which has a link to a page that will calculate load time on different connections. It can only do it for one page at a time though.
W3-dev menu: [
...] goddamn.co.uk Load time site: [ ...] websiteoptimization.com
I'm assuming posting these links are ok because I have seen them on other posts....

If you use Opera you can also customize your toolbars to show the time the page took to load, the speed at which you received the page and the total page size. I put these into the Status Bar, but you can but them anywhere. insight
Thanks bill! That's a big help. I saw that Opera kept a second counter, but I couldn't keep it from disappearing until your post prompted me to dig a little deeper into the toolbar configuration.
