Anyone know a way to measure application load times? I've looked at instruments but having a hard time pinning down the statistic/event I should be looking for.

I want to measure how long it takes for the app to finish loading, (the window appears) etc

What are you trying to accomplish? How precise of a measurement do you need? – bneely Feb 14 '12 at 22:50
Just in miliseconds. Essentially comparing the loading times of different browsers. – TheIrishGuy Feb 15 '12 at 21:50
