Session Title: What Slows You Down? Your Network or Your Device? 


Speaker: Moritz Steiner



For many years we have concentrated on back-end and network latency and ignored the processing time on the user device. Today, we spent most time on small mobile devices, compared to laptops they’re underpowered and web performance suffers. While handheld devices get more powerful, web pages get more and more complex. Especially the usage of javascript libraries and css frameworks is very computational expensive. Based on data from real users, we quantify the relative importance of network and device for web performance. We also benchmark mobile devices and correlate their power to the web performance they achieve.
