This is a comparison of the loading time/memory for the legacy JApplication based app classes versus
the proposed app classes built on JApplicationWeb.
This comparison is taken on joomla/joomla-cms@d28d5d15073561cb4c79f3e7cbfa221119e11e0e (master)
compared to joomla-projects/joomla-cms@d849d4669b3b9f7684dd8dd54e396a859e4acde5 (feature-app)
For both tests, a fresh installation is performed and the "Learn Joomla English (GB) Sample Data" dataset is installed.
For the site tests, the homepage is compared.
For the administrator tests, the login page and control panel pages are compared.
