Core Web Vitals is a new initiative from Google designed to measure and improve user experience on the web.
Core Web Vitals’ focus is for a better user experience and the below metrics are the most important ones for providing a great user experience.
At the moment, there are three Core Web Vitals:
- Largest Contentful Paint (loading performance)
- Cumulative Layout Shift (visual stability)
- First Input Delay (interactivity)
Google’s thresholds for these 3 metrics are as follows.
And rightfully so, showing results for your cloud tests will improve customer happiness and avoid churn rate.
Within our Pro plans, you can choose our White Label option and you will be able to brand PDF reports with your own logo & company…
Jenkins is one of the most popular CI/CD open source tools in the market at the moment.
To get a better understand why is it useful to use Jenkins or a CI/CD tool, let’s dive in a brief description to better understand what is Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD).
Continuous integration (CI) is a software process which helps developers and tech people better manage code changes in their repositories, dealing with multiple branches and features and merging all these code changes back to a shared branch, master.
You can upload your JMeter test scripts and run tests in just a few steps with our new JMeter Cloud Load Testing Tool.
Note: you can also upload a configuration CSV file (.csv) along your JMeter test script.
You can run your JMeter tests in…
Agile methodology nowadays, Scrum or Kanban, is completely different from what we were used to when was it was first presented to us.
We used to have 2/4 weeks sprints, with sprint retros and plannings/feature kick-offs.
In an attempt not to be forced to deliver big features in such a small timeframe (2/4 weeks) and also not to raise the team pressure/stress on plannings and commit to specific set of features, we decided to switch to Kanban.
With Kanban, we discovered that…
KissFront is a web performance monitoring tool running Lighthouse continuously or on-demand (using Lighthouse as a service) to monitor your website performance and get insights on speed with modern performance metrics.
It uses Lighthouse as a Service to provide regression testing for developers and product people.
Provides five categories of feedback, ranking from zero to 100. Lighthouse Audit references: Performance, Progressive Web App, Accessibility, Best Practices, SEO.
PWA: Checks your site’s level of completeness against the baseline Progressive Web App Checklist.

From collapsable tabs that close themselves after certain amount of time, or AI algorithm identifying the unused tabs and storing them in an area that may be called Staled Tabs (tabs the browser thinks you don’t need anymore), to Better Search in the History Tab and Performance & Security issues identified and displayed right by the browser in a special area for Website Improvements.
Why do we care so much about a small button that does a little thing in a hidden part of the Developer Tools, and why not create features with much more impact for the billions of…
Here are some best practices that we found useful:
LoadFocus provides a full suite of free cloud testing tools. We offer cloud load testing and website speed testing services, and recently we’ve added a cloud-based web UI testing service that makes life easier to build functional tests and automate the repetitive manual testing of your site.
It’s like Selenium WebDriver, but for projects that are short infrastructure and/or coding expertise to confidently develop and manage automated test suites of UI tests.
With the Automated Website Testing service from LoadFocus.com you can automate manual regression tests in just minutes and run them from the cloud to check for regressions:
