Good idea, but comparing page loading times won't tell you
much if the page contains e.g.
<img src="http://example.com/huge.jpg";>
Then DNS still comes into play.

Better I think to compare downloading one large compressed
binary with an application that doesn't do caching:

curl -O http://130.239.18.142/pub/gimp/gimp/v2.2/gimp-2.2.3.tar.bz2
