Page load times
I love how in the address bar you can see the byte count of a website and what I presume is the count of objects being loaded. Is it possible to show the load time as well?
No, loadtime is not displayed.
I dont know if this would be useful for most peple. Imagine they may have a large page with 5-10 Mbytes and it loads in 50 seconds, or a page that has successive loading (as Twitter or Facebook or some Blogs).
The Loadtime can be inspected in Developer Tools.
It is possible.
Use a third party app: GTmetrix
There are many more, but I prefer this one.
Create a free account and there you go!
This way you can compare the speed of different browsers as well.
It would be nice to see this instantly without having to use an extension, but in the meantime you can use this nice extension:
