PerformanceTiming.requestStart

Deprecated

This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

Warning

This interface of this property is deprecated in the Navigation Timing Level 2 specification. Please use the PerformanceNavigationTiming interface instead.

The legacy PerformanceTiming.requestStart read-only property returns an unsigned long long representing the moment, in milliseconds since the UNIX epoch, when the browser sent the request to obtain the actual document, from the server or from a cache. If the transport layer fails after the start of the request and the connection is reopened, this property will be set to the time corresponding to the new request.

Syntax

time = performanceTiming.requestStart;

Specifications

This feature is no longer on track to become a standard, as the Navigation Timing specification has marked it as deprecated. Use the PerformanceNavigationTiming interface instead.
