Well, It does a great job of telling how long the server took to process the php, but that has nothing to do with browser rendering time or bandwidth. In fact, you should get almost the very same number regardless of the browser.

The PHP Hypertext Preprocessor generates the html and then the browser loads the page.

I agree with Derrick, it had nothing to do with the browser loading time.

This is actually handy for a number of situations like testing different methods of code, or checking server load at certain times of the day.
Why did some guy post about the browser ? This has nothing in the world got to do with the browser or the bandwith lol.

I dont know where anyone got the idea he said it would work for telling how fast the browser would load. It's very helpful when reading files on the server, or running loops, encrypting something or optimizing your code. Thanks, Good Job!

It would probably be easier to just put this at the beginning of the file

$start_time = microtime();

then at the end

$load_time = round((microtime() - $start_time), 4
);

if (substr($load_time, 0, 1) == "-")
{
$load_time = substr($load_time, 5);
}
