    Installed DigitalPoint Better Analytics and enabled Google Analytics tracking code both of which add more http requests (ngx_pagespeed reduces it slightly) and increase page size.

    Latest GTMetrix result for https://community.centminmod.com after fine tuning my ngx_pagespeed filters.

    Using Centmin Mod based Nginx 1.7.2, PHP 5.5.14, MariaDB 5.5.38 + CSF Firewall + Google SPDY SSL + ngx_pagespeed :)

    primed ngx_pagespeed gtmetrix result (meaning after a few page loads and ngx_pagespeed has optimised resources on the page) :D

    note: both twitter and google login integration also enabled

    Synthetic tests are nice, but it's more accurate to look at Google Analytic's Page Speed numbers as they have a geographically relative context to them. Particularly for average page load time and more important the average DOMinteractive time (time for visitor to visually see and interact with the page that is loading).

    Numbers for my forums https://community.centminmod.com/ most recently

    Enabled Share This Page social media features for Twitter, Facebook and Google+ so retesting forums for gtmetrix and webpagetest pagespeed numbers :)

    gtmetrix_021114_index_00.png

    webpagetest compare across several regions including Dulles, New York, San Jose, Chicago, Denver and Montreal (tested twice)

    SpeedIndex is what you need to look at for best performance in terms of initial perceived page loading as you can see from filmstrip, San Jose is fastest give this forum's server is located in Freemont, California :)

    Just enabled Facebook login integration, so check to see how that affects page speed.

    • Looks like increase in javascript js requests as expected and seems that fully loaded page time increased dramatically - being twice as slow. If you look closely, you can see for Facebook first view, the Facebook login button on right sidebar doesn't begin to show until around 1.6 seconds into the 2nd listed screenshot
    • While initial visual render time slightly improved for first paint (probably just normal variation between runs). However, for seeing the more of the forum page rendered, Facebook first view was slower at 1.2s vs 1.1s for non-facebook page.
    • Repeat view on the other hand was faster for Facebook repeat view run.

    First and repeat view compared for each - listed order from top to bottom is
    • facebook first view
    • non-facebook first view
    • facebook repeat view
    • non-facebook repeat view
