Browser API: Add event for page download progress
Today, the browser API only tells if a frame is loading or not. It makes it impossible to build a progress bar. Having something like `onProgressChange(CurTotalProgress,MaxTotalProgress)` from nsIWebProgressListener would probably work.
There's semi-related discussion in https://github.com/whatwg/fetch/issues/19, too.
This patch adds loadprogresschanged event.

Results are not very satisfying. Pretty often, the max value is lower than the current value. Sometimes the max value is 10 times smaller than the current value. Not sure what we can do about it.
This makes chorme process main thread quite busy when launch an app on FxOS and delay sync IPCs from child. Do we need this event all the time?
We actually need only the first download progress event to indicate download has started.
I have tried to gather visuallyLoaded event of launching SMS on my Flame , with and without the path here: AVG MED MIN MAX STD With the patch 1642.380661 1620.661354 1528.798750 1822.307707 99.2765441 Without the patch 1355.260708 1363.919010 1234.469479 1515.148748 85.04832144 It's ~300ms regression. Can we back this out and revise the patch if we need only the first download progress event?

Ting-Yu, please backout.
I couldn't find a backout flag, how should I request that?

We want to do something similar to what Firefox does: indicate when load starts (reaching the server, grey throbber), indicate when the server responded (starting downloading, blue throbber). So mozbrowserloadstart is not enough.
I've updated the patch to only send an event (mozbrowserconnected) once the server has been reached. The goal is to be able to differentiate the phase when the browser is connecting to the server and the phase when the browser is downloading and loading the page.

This still sends multiple "connected" event. We should send only one.
For Servo, we are planning to fire a "mozbrowserconnected" event once the server has been reached.
