2200 CMS Load Time Comparisons, Which is the Fastest?

2200 CMS Load Time Comparisons, Which is the Fastest?

I received an email from the Admin of Page Load Time at the start of this week, informing me that they had tested the Page Load Times of 2200 (honestly, they have, its amazing) websites of the following CMSs: Movable Type, WordPress, EZ Publish, PHP Nuke, Joomla, Drupal, Mambo and Plone. Elgg was also included within the tests but proved to be far too slow consistently, therefore was excluded from all final results.
Remarkable and breath taking work.

Of course the results can?t be perfect by picking random websites, but the results do give us all a good measure.

Note : Websites were selected by searching on ?powered by ?? in google and selecting the first 300 to 700 websites for each CMS.
