Third Party Website Automation - Ensure Consistent Load Time


Some processes that I use run into issues when automating a website via browser. The website itself has inconsistent load times and my network also has inconsistent load times. This causes many issues. What are the best practices / a workaround to ensure consistent load times?

For example, a solution that I would want would be a setting that I can update in Chrome/IE that allows me to limit the load time (I would set the load time to be like 5 seconds). Enough time for the page to load, but also it would make the site consistent. Such that even if a page can load in under 5 seconds that it still does 5 seconds. Does something like that exist?
