Did you know that Web had a Performance API?
It provides you with various metrics to measure how your website/webapp performs. 🚀
Here are 3 quick methods you can use now…
1/ Resource Timings
Fetch the list of resources loaded in the page, identify the ones that consume more time, and even track them to improve your app’s experience
Why? Because real world measures vary. Having performance budgets are not enough.
