The HTTP Archive Tracks HTTP Requests For Sites Over Time

For the data nerds out there, the HTTP Archive is like The Internet Archive except instead of capturing just the pages of a website, it tracks the load sizes, times and attributes of websites on the internet.For each website it tracks, HTTP Archive is tracking a lot of data about the load times and other neat information about the site. It even allows you to "play back" the loading of the site - which isn't necessary useful, but it is cool to watch how the page loads from another vantage point.

They also includes lots of interesting stats, for example how else would you know the Flash is by far the heaviest bandwidth offender or that Google Analytics is the most popular JavaScript library?

They currently track 17239 websites which are a mixture of the most-trafficked sites according to sites like Quantcast and Alexa.
