Closed, ResolvedPublic


I think there's more than enough material in T146510: Investigate async cache-eval load-time regression (2016-09-08) to make a compelling blog post.

2017-03-22: Chromium announced intent to ship more background throttling.

Closing for now. The effort for this task mainly went into publishing Blog Post: Measuring Wikipedia page load times at There will be more posts (hopefully) about this topic, and that may get to this incident eventually, but we may also have other incidents to describe instead that are equally interesting and possibly more recent/relevant. Don't want to keep this task open for that, though.
