[meta] HTTP redirection bugs
. - top slow loading pages doing redirection
meta bug for tracking HTTP redirection bugs.
Here is another area to look at. Several of these top slow loaders when compared to other browsers involve being redirected to other sites. We need to figure out if any of the dependency bugs on this list will have impact on improving 'redircted page' loading performance. Next steps would be to confirm the page loading deltas below, figure out content elements that might be holding us back from doing better on these sites, then translate those problems into bugs with reduced test cases.... Site - Load Time - Additional Load time over other browsers http://www.ANGELFIRE.COM 28.17 27.02 redirects to http://angelfire.lycos.com/ http://www.abc.com 27.16 25.42 redirects to http://abc.go.com/ http://www.ITARGET.COM 22.26 20.93 redirects to http://rewards.mypoints.com/minutes/itarget http://www.YIMG.COM 22.14 20.92 jrgm finds that yimg.com is a domain used by Yahoo to serve up images. There is www.yimg.com as far as I know (or can connect to), although you can connect to one of their image servers at e.g., http://us.a1.yimg.com http://www.sjmercury.com 21.16 19.87 redirects to http://www.bayarea.com/ http://www.thecase.com 17.79 16.13 redirects to http://www.mysterynet.com/club/
Summary: [meta] HTTP redirection bugs. → [meta] HTTP redirection bugs. - top slow loading pages doing redirection
chris, i don't think the remaining depencies listed above could account for the poor performance numbers. more likely, it is the fact that we proxy data from the socket transport thread to the UI thread before HTTP gets a chance to parse the data. Some portion of HTTP's processing should really be moved onto the socket transport thread, so that redirects could be processed more immediately. This is a considerable architectural change.
all redirection related bugs taken care of... marking this as fixed.
