It is ironic when G's own tool shows you the speed penalty of their own ads.
I constantly see "waiting for ads.doubleclick" in my status bar.I never see that at my sites. Using Chrome both desktop & mobile, although Firefox was slower at loading ads (one of the reasons I switched.) I just use the normal async code but I preload in an independent div then float to position.
I abandoned Chrome, because I was unable to kill everything "autoplay".Oh there's a Chrome extension that kills autoplay. Been using it for about a year, works great: [chrome.google.com...]
Firefox adds extra space in several CSS fields. Chrome is more exact so I know exactly what the markup will display.
if I remove ads and social buttons, a lot of my sites have near instantaneous display
