Introducing the Core Web Vitals Technology Report

From DevTo:

The technologies you use to build your website can have an effect on your ability to deliver good user experiences. Good UX is key to performing well with Core Web Vitals (CWV), a topic which is probably top of mind for you, as it is for many other web developers now that these metrics play a role in Google Search ranking. While web developers have had tools like Search Console and PageSpeed Insights to get data on how their sites are performing, the web community has been lacking a tool that has operated at the macro level, giving us something more like WebSpeed Insights. By combining the powers of real-user experiences in the Chrome UX Report (CrUX) dataset with web technology detections in HTTP Archive, we can get a glimpse into how architectural decisions like choices of CMS platform or JavaScript framework play a role in sites’ CWV performance. The merger of these datasets is a dashboard called the Core Web Vitals Technology Report.

The most idealistic goal for this dashboard is to empower influencers in the web community to make improvements to swaths of websites at scale. Web transparency projects like this one are meant to inform and inspire, whether that’s instilling a sense of competitiveness with other related technologies to climb the leaderboard or giving them actionable data to make meaningful improvements to technologies under their control. Please leave a comment if you have any suggestions to help make the CWV Technology Report better!
