printQueryStatistics() itself only displays a rather small table and a
bit of json code. That itself should actually hardly make a
difference. To test the page load time without the chart you'd need to
remove the PMA_createChart()-call inside initTab() in
server_status.js. In my tests it only loaded 200-300ms faster though.

The page load event in my case (on a thinkpad x61s - older dual core /
2gb ram, windows xp using chrome as browser, and on localhost) fires
in 6-8 seconds on a full page reload (without frames).

Removing  printQueryStatistics() actually throws a js error which
might be the reason why your page loads so much  faster. Though for me
it still requires over 5 seconds.

I think the most gain we could get from:
- loading the status variables page on demand. Reason: with js
disabled, a page reload still takes up to 4 seconds (till load event),
and the variables table is ~90% of all the sent content.
- load javascript libraries on demand: js disabled speeds up page
reload 2-4 seconds for me. Also merging js files would help - the
status page currently has 21 (!) seperate javascript files to load.

Yes I also have my concerns about this. This is why I added css sprites to pma
Loading chart on demand is certainly a good idea.
