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

The second fastest site in this test,, was the site that loaded the fewest elements with only 30 requests. And at the other end of the chart we have 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.
