The World Wide Web is still among the most prominent Internet applications. While the Web landscape has been in perpetual movement since the very beginning, these last few years have witnessed some noteworthy proposals such as SPDY, HTTP/2 and QUIC which could disrupt the Web status quo and profoundly reshape the protocols family at application layer.
We’re working toward the definition and assessment of objective metrics (such as SpeedIndex, Above-The-Fold and variants), and on gathering and analyzing subjective user feedback (such as user grades, user-perceived page load time, etc.). In this website you can find more information about the metrics and models we defined, as well as the dataset and code we make available, and of course browse through our publications.
