I have a little blog and I wanted to check the performance of the website using GTmetrix.

In the Timeline of the downloaded elements by the browser, I found a surprise: The .png of my Stack Overflow flair takes too much time to load. This is definitely not normal. Please fix it.

I've updated your GTmetrix link to point to results from an analysis of your first link. The results show a total time of 342 ms for the flair image. – Asad Saeeduddin Dec 20 '12 at 14:33
that's because it is a second loaded , and the image stays on the browser – Ojiryx Dec 20 '12 at 14:35
No, the server at http://gtmetrix.com does not cache results from previous tests of a page. That said, repeated tests do fluctuate quite a bit, between 1.4s and 73ms. – Asad Saeeduddin Dec 20 '12 at 14:39
really strange ! – Ojiryx Dec 20 '12 at 14:43
wait let me test from INDIA not Canada. – Ojiryx Dec 20 '12 at 14:44
check now please ! – Ojiryx Dec 20 '12 at 14:46
It only actually takes the server 287+61 ms to respond to your request (that's the purple and gray areas). The majority of the holdup (520ms) is being caused by "blocking", which is typical of non-asynchronous requests. I'm not sure why this is occurring with an image, but it is definitely a client side problem. – Asad Saeeduddin Dec 20 '12 at 14:53
I will take this comment as an answer ... please copy it :) – Ojiryx Dec 20 '12 at 16:05
