With the help of performance overlay in Google Chrome 90, developers and users will be able to know how fast websites load

Web-developers need to know how their website is performing. Google has launched Core web Vitals which can judge the speed of websites. It has a decent role in search ranking in the year 2020. The developers are now able to judge the speed and frame rates of their website on the desktop for the first time, but in Chrome 90, Google wants to do something different by mixing these live stats in the desktops and mobiles version its browser. This will be launched in the shape of a performance HUD overlay.

Google Engineering Manager Addy Osmani has said that you will be able to switch it on or off according to your choice. This will become the part of chrome DevTools. When the developers want to show the Core Web Vitals or speed metrics, they can enable it. The innate feature will be available on the mobile browser, whereas, the previous restrictions of using only desktop browser extension is now removed.


If you are excited enough to check the HUD for yourself, you can install the Chrome Canary and go to the chrome://flags, and search for "Show performance metrics in HUD", then you can enable the entry. This will show the metrics permanently after the restart until you disable the flag by yourself.


Google is making it easier for the developer to create their website even faster and they can judge their website performance, this could be exciting news for the developers who do not want their websites to be slow and junky. This new HUD will be one of the Tools which can fix different issues of your websites.

This is an initiative of Google to provide the web developers suggestions for great signals that is important for giving great experience on their web.

Core Web Vitals is a subdivision of Web Vitals, which can be used on all web pages, you can measure it on all websites you have created, and this will be textured on Google tools.

It took 2.5 seconds to load the page of Largest Contentful Paints, when they checked their loading performance, while the First Input delay checked their interactivity, the page had the FID of less than 100 milliseconds which can provide users a good experience.

This experience will provide the developers interest to create their website even smoother and faster than ever before. The Engineering Manager has said that the performance of HUD will get even better over time.
