Image Inconsistencies: How and When Browsers Download Images

CSS Wizardry

My only reservation was knowing that, because the images are defined in CSS rather than HTML, their outgoing requests won’t start until the browser has created the Render Tree: it’s not until all the CSS has been downloaded, parsed, and the CSSOM constructed that the browser actually knows This div with this class is currently visible on the page and its background is set to be this image: I’d better download it! we can’t download a background-image until we’ve built the CSSOM).

How to add you database to HammerDB – Pt2 Fork, clone and binary downloads

HammerDB

This can be done with Clone or download. in this example we will use the command line to do this using the web URL shown in the Clone or download link. As identified in the previous post we don’t have the correct bin and lib directory so need to download the binaries version from here. As noted in the previous post to add a database to HammerDB you will need to change the source code. There are different ways to do this, however the recommended way is as follows.

Media Query & Asset Downloading Results

Tim Kadlec

A little while back, I mentioned I was doing some research for the book about how images are downloaded when media queries are involved. The same as with the first test: every browser tested, aside from Opera Mini and Opera Mobile, will download the image. With the exception of the over-eager Fennec, every tested browser only downloads the image when needed. which dominates the Android marketshare, still downloads both images as does Fennec and the Kindle.

Media Query & Asset Downloading Tests

Tim Kadlec

Unfortunately if you’re not careful, this can lead to multiple images being downloaded even when they aren’t being used. A few people—including Jason Grigsby , Greg Rewis and Aaron Mentele —have done some excellent testing about how images are downloaded when media queries are involved. The property (which appears to be well supported) returns true if the image has been requested and downloaded, and false otherwise.

CSS and Network Performance

CSS Wizardry

CSS is critical to rendering a page—a browser will not begin rendering until all CSS has been found, downloaded, and parsed—so it is imperative that we get it onto a user’s device as fast as we possibly can. download any CSS needed for the current context (medium, screen size, resolution, orientation, etc.) with a very high priority, blocking the Critical Path, and; download any CSS not needed for the current context with a very low priority, completely off of the Critical Path.

Bandwidth or Latency: When to Optimise for Which

CSS Wizardry

Generally speaking, increased bandwidth is only particularly useful when you’re transferring or downloading large files. In the Time column: The top value is total time taken from dispatching the request to having downloaded the entire response. There are a lot of different phases involved in getting from the point of requesting a file until we’re able to begin downloading it. It took only 3ms to download this file, yet 74ms to negotiate the network.

Mobile App Performance Testing Checklist

According to Statista , in 2016, the number of app downloads was approximately 140 billion. The market is filling up with mobile applications more and more. In 2019, this number increased up to 204 billion, and in 2021, this rate is keeping growing. At the same time, competition among companies is growing, and users raise their requirements for app quality. Poor quality products vanish from the market, and their owners go bust.

Thus, on a 3G connection, it takes over nine seconds to download each file. Conversely, the median download time for the CSS file was just 9.5ms—it took 148× longer to get to the headers of the file than it did to download the whole thing.

Optimizing Video For Size And Quality

Smashing Magazine

A video with large dimensions or a high bitrate will take longer to download and will require a higher speed network to play back smoothly. We see that an MP4 file is being downloaded. In this case, the partial download is 87 MB, and the entire file is 157,715,457 bytes.

When CSS Blocks

Tim Kadlec

Preload is a bit of a blunt instrument—whatever you apply to it is gonna jump way up in line to be downloaded. If CSS is still being downloaded, inline scripts won’t run until that CSS arrives. That already puts us in a better state: the network priorities now line up much better with the actual importance of the assets being downloaded, and we’ve eliminated that inline script block.

In-Browser Performance Linting With Feature Policies

Tim Kadlec

With the oversized-images policy in place, large images are still downloaded, but placeholders are shown instead, and an error is logged to the console. Without those in place, the browser has no idea how much space the image should take up until the image has actually been downloaded. While unsized-media would potentially reduce layout shifting, the other policies still result in the images being downloaded, so the sole benefit is this increased visibility.

I downloaded the latest version so that I could self-host (there’s no reason to incur the separate connection cost) and dropped it into my page on a separate branch (very creatively called “instant-page”) and pushed to GitHub. I’ve wanted to give instant.page a proper try out on my site for a while now. It’s a pretty clever approach.

The Cost of Javascript Frameworks

Tim Kadlec

The thing about JavaScript is you end up paying a performance tax no less than four times: The cost of downloading the file on the network. The cost of parsing and compiling the uncompressed file once downloaded. There is no faster (pun intended) way to slow down a site than to use a bunch of JavaScript. The cost of executing the JavaScript. The memory cost. The combination is very expensive. And we are shipping an increasingly high amount.

Experimenting with the Streams API

Dean Hume

The benefit of using streams is that if you are sending large chunks of data over the web, you can start processing the data immediately as you receive it, without having to wait for the full download to complete. For example, if you think of a large video file and imagine how long it might take to download the whole file. For example, if we needed to download a large file, process it, and keep it in memory, this could become a problem.
