What's the use case?

Generally speaking, Web pages load incrementally, so by the time you've 
downloaded an image, you should be able to just show the Web page itself, 
at least in a state good enough for the user. (For example, even really 
large and expensive pages like Google+ render in a usable state quickly, 
even though they continue to load assets and scripts in the background and 
thus actually don't present an interactive UI straight away.)

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
