Well they're not precise measurements, but the speed and downtime are
quantifiable, so not exactly subjective either. With regards to speed,
I find clicks (even to open tiny files) take several seconds to
respond on github's git browser, and it's all time spent in
client-side javascript, which loads a representation (json iirc) of
the data and then transforms it to html client-side. Compare this to
cgit (what we have on the musl site) which loads instantly.
