comment How long should a page take to load?
In most single-page interfaces that make heavy use of Ajax -- e.g. Gmail, Google search, Gawker sites, Twitter, Github's tree slider, certain areas of Facebook -- the concept of a "page" still seems like a useful metaphor as a unit of navigation, making "page load time" still a relevant performance metric. Infinite scrolling is a notable trend, but not the main use case for SPI's/Ajax-heavy web properties. In SPI's I'd say a "page load" is a UI transition that loads new resources into view and updates the browser address bar, and "page load time" is how long it takes to do that.

comment How to measure UI lag on computer?
My initial answer, which was web-centric, was made before the asker clarified they weren't interested in non-web applications. I've updated my answer to focus more on UI latency in desktop applications more generally.
