Total Blocking Time

Time it takes for a page to start working after it loads

Some news websites load their pages with lots of images, large video files, huge advertisements, and other complicated things that delays the amount of time it takes for the page to load between when it was downloaded over the Internet and usable by you. That delay is known as the Total Blocking Time, and it stands between you wanting to read the news and you actually reading the news.

Legible News keeps its total blocking time low by keeping the complexity of its web pages low, which means there’s not much work for your browser to do when a page loads.
