👋 Colin White and @Miguel Ángel Ruiz López,
Of course, ten trials are not a representative sample size. In addition, there are many factors like internet connection that do not make this a scientific comparison to the load times a year ago. However, it is still interesting to compare Coil to Glide’s percent differences under the same network conditions.
Glide edges out the comparison at 9.2% faster for the first load of all the images in the feed. This seems like a significantly smaller speed difference compared to the original test from the graph below which shows Glide as ~42% faster in first-time loads for the entire feed.
Given this difference accounts for only 4.5% of a second, Coil is a great option to continue to deliver optimal performance to the user and for developers to adopt with greater ease of use and less boilerplate code.
