Let’s understand what role Google Lighthouse plays and how you can leverage it within the LT Browser. You’ll also find some bonus additions to make your mobile website testing experience more seamless.
What Is Google Lighthouse?
Developed by Google, Google Lighthouse is an automation tool designed for web developers to measure and enhance their website’s performance. It takes a web address as an input and generates a list of recommendations based on performance, search engine optimization, accessibility, PWA, etc. By using these metrics, you can boost page load performance and make your site faster than ever.
LT Browser Performance Reports Powered By Lighthouse
Measuring the efficiency of your website can be challenging. To elevate the performance of your website, you need to understand exactly what you measure. LT Browser now integrates Google Lighthouse! This allows you to measure the performance statistics of your website right away. You won’t need to download any extensions; LT Browser provides an integration solution for viewing website scores and testing your website’s responsiveness.
In addition to ensuring the website’s responsiveness, you can now view your website’s performance metrics across 40+ devices with just a simple click. You would have to click on the meter icon to view your website’s metrics, as shown below.
How Does This Performance Report Help You?
With the new power-packed and Lighthouse backed performance reports, you will be able to do a lot more than everyday reporting. With LT browser, you can now view the following metrics:
Desktop And Mobile Score
Based on the performance of your website over different browsers, the desktop and mobile scores will be generated. The score is divided into three categories, namely- Poor, Average, and Medium. As the names suggest, they will help define the page speed score of your website.
It comprises audits of performance, best practices, SEO, progressive web apps, and more. By analyzing these audits, you would know how well your page performs and make enhancements to those web pages. You can view the performance metrics for both desktop and mobile devices.
In runtime settings, you’ll find the URL of the tested website along with information about the time and date for when it was run on that particular website.
For more help, you can refer to our documentation on Performance Report.
