When I started giving talks about SVG back in 2016, I'd occasionally hear a question I never had a great answer for: What if you have a lot of icons on a page?
Performance, Page 2
In case you missed it, last month we released Lighthouse Parade, a CLI tool to automatically run and aggregate Lighthouse performance reports across an entire site. One of the most requested features has been the ability to limit which pages are crawled. We're excited to release Lighthouse Parade 1.1, which introduces three new flags to accommodate these use cases.
Lighthouse Parade is a Node.js command line tool that crawls a domain and gathers lighthouse performance data for every page. With a single command, the tool will crawl an entire site, run a Lighthouse report for each page, and then output a spreadsheet with the aggregated data. Each row in the generated spreadsheet is a page on the site, and each individual performance metric is a column. This is convenient for high-level analysis because you can sort the rows by whichever metric you are analyzing.
Development toolchains now have many more layers of tools than they did years ago. Because of this change, the JS code that runs in our users' browsers looks less like the original code we authored. Periodically checking the code generated by our tools can lead to opportunities to reduce bundle size and improve performance for users.
Website speed and performance are a question of equity. Fast and lightweight sites mean that everyone can access your content equally. It’s not only an economic imperative; it’s a moral imperative.

A couple weeks ago, I received a polite inquiry from Colin van Eenige asking if I would help him with a graduation project by answering some questions about Progressive Web Apps. We exchanged a few…
