So what do we measure and how do we measure it? Our most important metric for now is the “First Meaningful Paint” (FMP) https://developers.google.com/web/tools/lighthouse/audits/first-meaningful-paint, tested on a 3G connection on a mobile device. We monitor our perf. with @SpeedCurve@twitter.com (which runs WebPageTest tests in the background).
As a result the homepage FMP went down from ~ 6.3 seconds to ~ 3.5 seconds, and the article FMP from ~ 6 seconds to ~ 3.3 seconds. 🎉
