Why a small favicon takes 10 times to load?

Hi,

Our website is cached by Cloudflare.

I am using GTMetrix to analyze our website, the report is at Archived Performance Report for: https://www.datanumen.com/outlook-repair/ | GTmetrix

I find a strange thing. It takes 221 ms to load the 1.32k favicon.png. But takes only takes only 26ms to load 1.61k logo.png, see below:

Both logo.png and favicon.png are cached by Cloudflare.

I have made many tests and always get similar results, for example, this is another report: Latest Performance Report for: https://www.datanumen.com/outlook-repair/ | GTmetrix

Hi,

Today I just try to see if hosting images on Cloudflare images will improve the image load speed.

I make two very simple pages:

  1. Test page 1: contain an image hosted on our own server(US, LA)
  2. Test page 2: contain an image hosted on Cloudflare(Imagedelivery.net)

I use GTMetrix to test from Sydney, Australia.

For Test page 1, even if the image is miss, its load time is only 246ms, see below:

For Test page 2, if the image is miss, the load time is 2.5s, see below:

So, in such a case, why should I use Cloudflare Images since it performs worse than my own server?
