What problems would this solve?
More people would use MDN as compared to the competition. Google has written extensively about how perceived and actual page load speeds improve user retention.

Who would use this?

What would users see?
Faster load times

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
Just visit the website

Is there anything else we should know?
Certain competitors pages load up to 5 times faster than MDN.
Hi jason, page load times are something we are always hoping to improve.  It would help if we had some more information to compare your observations with.  Do you remember which pages you were visiting, on MDN and elsewhere, when you were doing the comparison?

Actual load times, in milliseconds, would be super helpful, too.

I don't remember the exact page, but they are all on the slow side for me. I just loaded:
And it took 1.27 seconds for the first GET request to finish. There are many sites that will entirely load in that time.

I have attached a screenshot of the Chrome Dev Tools output.
We continue to work to make MDN Web Docs faster for all users. This particular bug doesn't seem actionable however - no specific changes to make, no "done" criteria. I don't think it is a good framework for "go faster" work.
