Optimize user experience with ‘Visually complete’ & ‘Speed index’ measures

Traditional web performance metrics focus primarily on load times and resource sizes. These attributes typically aren’t, however, the best indicators of user experience.

With such apps, W3C navigation timings may be triggered too early—even before JavaScript code … read more
