Web Performance of the World’s Top 50 Blogs image/svg+xml

The second fastest site in this test, css-tricks.com, was the site that loaded the fewest elements with only 30 requests. And at the other end of the chart we have tmz.com with a mind-boggling 969 requests. It’s worth mentioning that the Pingdom Full Page Test crashed a few times because of the poor performance of TMZ. Well played, guys.

Haha. Seriously though, there are some interesting stats here, some of the page sizes are bonkers. It’s just a shame that there is no mention of HTTP/2 adoption, it would have been nice to see which blogs are using it, and how they ranked.
