Abstract

The paper reviews the factors affecting latency when loading web pages. It concludes that nowadays network bandwidth plays an increasingly small role about the latency. An empirical research was made to find out how much the latency is reduced when using the HTTP/2 server push technology. An average by volume and by content web page is used in the tests, which includes different versions of the protocol HTTP - HTTP/1.1, HTTPS/1.1 and HTTPS/2. Experimental software is created and an external program to simulate network latency is used.
