There are two likely causes for the difference:
- browser has cached the embedded resources, so does not waste time
downloading them.
- browser loads the embedded resources in parallel; JMeter does not
unless you tell it to, so the time will the the sum of all the
requests instead of the longest request for the parallel case.
