Could you test your 605 WiFi browser speed in seconds for loading following sites:

Amazon
CNET
Digg
Engadget
Google News
MicroPCTalk
MySpace
NY Times
Pocketables
YouTube

Consider having recently cleared your browser cache and temporary system files of your Archos using that function in the system settings.

And consider navigation on a site might already be accessible before that the status bar says it is completely loaded, if that is the case, please post after how many seconds the site starts to be browsable and how many seconds later the rest of the page has completely loaded according to the status bar.

Also check if the pages load faster once you load them for a second time.

It is for comparing with the tests of the 604 WiFi browser and browsers of other devices in this thread: http://forum.archosfans.com/viewtopic.php?t=7458

My results are in the form: Usable time/1st Full Load time/2nd Full Load time.

(Where do you delete cache? I went to browser settings and erased "History". I did not delete cookies because i don't want to have to retype in all my saved/cookied passwords!)


Amazon 10/17/15
CNET 20/1:15/1:00
Digg 15/25/17
Engadget 20/40/35
Google News 5/12/12
MicroPCTalk 8/10/10
MySpace 5/20/15
NY Times10/35/25
Pocketables 1/1/1
YouTube 10/30/20

I think you can find it in Settings -> System -> Format and repair tools -> Clear system files and cache

OK but full loading of the page, I'm not sure it's needed.. Isn't what one needs is for the page to become browsable with the top pictures possibly loaded but at least so you can start reading and scrolling in the page. Since by the time you scroll to the bottom of the page the page could be fully loaded by then.

I tested it with my 604 WiFi and I got those numbers:

http://news.google.com - 8 seconds
http://amazon.com - 8 seconds
http://cnet.com - 10 seconds
http://digg.com - 12 seconds
http://myspace.com - 7 seconds
http://youtube.com - 7 seconds (thus no flash is loaded)
http://pocketables.net - 7 seconds
http://engadget.com - 25 seconds (Their servers are probably more busy because of the massive images and that's why they have a quick loading http://m.engadget.com/) The second time I revisit http://engadget.com the loading time to be able to start scrolling on the page is 17 seconds.

So if the Archos hangs on to something before it says it's completely loaded the page, that doesn't mean one cannot have started browsing through the page before hand. It might be hanging on something that's not even visible. So what are the times that you've got for the page to be browsable, that you can start scrolling down and clicking on links.

The first number is the seconds before i could scroll around and read all the text. I also waited until the main nav links/buttons showed up since i consider that important. Most of the graphics have not loaded, but it's enough for me to use the page.

Wouldn't these numbers be more indicative of the bandwidth of the person's connection, not the speed of the web browser?

Yeah, i guess the best way to see the difference in speed is to have BOTH models side by side, using the same wifi connection, accessing the same sites at exactly the same time.

John, I guess I have to politely disagree with Charbax...I'm glad you posted all three load times (very systematic work!). For everyday browsing, Charbax is right...but I can think of several examples where I don't necessarily need the WHOLE page to load, but I am waiting on some specific HTML element, e.g., a link or image at the bottom, text box, etc., which may not appear until late in the process.

So if you keep working on the problem, I hope you continue to include multiple load-time measures!

Thanks,

-Matt
