There is a gap today between the standard page load metrics (either based on onload, domcontentloaded or W3C timing) and the real quality of user experience. This gap is widening gradually as the Web becomes richer and more interactive. At Bing, we have addressed this problem by focusing on a rich set of Task Completion Metrics that correlate well with user engagement and the overall quality of user experience. This has helped us design features to make Bing more helpful, fast and beautiful at the same time.

In this talk, we will discuss the strategies we implemented to make it faster for users to accomplish their tasks at Bing. We’ll also go over some novel ways Bing has optimized the time it takes to load our web pages.
