By dispatching the font requests immediately after first style calculation the font download will be initiated ~130ms earlier at the median and ~800ms earlier at 90th percentile! Cross-referencing these savings with the font fetch latencies we saw earlier shows that in many cases this will allow us to fetch the font before the layout is done, which …
