Re: What is the bottleneck in web-browsing performance?

Fri Apr 27, 2012 4:41 pm

I'm running the latest distro of debian with the midori browser.  It takes around 5 or 10 seconds for the browser to open and 5 or 10 seconds for web pages to load. Scrolling through them seems slow to respond.  Does anybody know the reason for this?

The slow ARM11 CPU is your primary bottleneck, followed by the graphics performance due to lack of X11 drivers.

Loading time...lot of stuff loads with a modern browser, so no surprise there.

Page loading time...given all the cruft included in modern web pages, 5 to 10 secs isn't a big surprise either.  On a fair number of web sites even on a 2.5GHz XP Wintel system, I'd be happy to get pages to load that fast.

And don't forget the gpu still not helping the system.

When that happens, things will be smoother

The application and page loading time isn't unacceptably slow in my opinion. Its the scroll speed that makes it feel so sluggish. I would imagine once (if) X drivers come out this will be massively improved. I hope somebody with the appropriate skills is working on it. I wish I had the ability to contribute.
