Hi all,

I want to calculate time consumed in redirecting from 1 webpage to another webpage.
For Example:
1) I am using Facebook in Google Chrome browser.
I have shared 1 link on my Facebook profile like below:

webdeveloper.com/

2) When I click on this link from my Facebook profile, then this website will open in new tab.

3) I want to calculate time difference in miliseconds or microseconds between below two events:
First Event: Time of clicking link "http://www.webdeveloper.com/" from my Facebook profile.
Second Event: Time of completely loading webpage of "http://www.webdeveloper.com/".

Thank you in advance.

Every time, or just to get a rough idea?

For you're own information, or to show to users?

Just adding that *perceived* load time is often very different to *actual* load times. Perceived load times can be much lower (with web developers manipulating this to their advantage), so just be aware that advertising an actual (higher) load time to visitors might inadvertently leave a negative impression.
