Formatted abstract
Today's Web bears little resemblance to the Web of a decade ago. A Web page today encapsulates tens to hundreds of resources pulled from multiple domains. JavaScript is the technological staple of Web applications, not a tool for frivolous animation. Users access the Web from diverse device form factors, while browsers have improved dramatically. A constant throughout this evolution is the underlying applicationlayer protocol-HTTP-providing fertile ground for Web growth and evolution but was designed at a time of far less page complexity. Moreover, HTTP is not optimal, with pages taking longer to load. Studies over the past five years suggest even 100 milliseconds
