Massive Testing Differences Between WebPageTest.org and Other Tests
Hi everyone,

I have always used GTMetrix, Pingdom, and to a lesser extent Google Page Speed Insights to assist with site/Web optimization. A friend had mentioned WebPageTest.org in passing, so I decided to check it out. I'm mystified about the results here and just how massive the difference is, especially regarding load time:

WebPageTest.org: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140223_NH_BA1/

GTMetrix: http://gtmetrix.com/reports/websitetraff...t/mKFLW1rV

Pingdom: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/biGVNv/h...ehouse.net

Our parent company/organization is a world-wide, web-based consortium, so this site is being real-world tested for things like load time literally on every continent with numerous browsers, different operating systems, etc. We have never had this site load slower than 4.8 seconds anywhere in the world, and haven't been able to replicate that single instance since.

Anyway, the results on WebPageTest.org have me nervous, lol. Can anyone help interpret these profound differences?

Many Thanks.
