Google Chrome will slow down slow sites to improve web experience

If the Chrome (fortunately) inherited from Internet Explorer the title of "world standard browser", so it's in the hands of Google guide trends towards the future internet, which is a tremendous responsibility. The good part is that, at least on the surface, they seem to be doing a good job.

The project development team Chromium today presented at the Chrome Dev Summit conference the next steps that Chrome will take to make the web experience faster and more enjoyable. The first idea that Google should soon adopt is Slow down slow loading sites, so developers and webmasters be even more committed to creating (and maintaining) fast and light pages.

There is not yet a forecast for the arrival of the resource or a definition of how it presents itself, but the idea is to identify pages that traditionally take time to load and display, during the process, a message indicating this to the user. Slow sites may have a blue loading bar (like the ones we have today), while fast sites would be "rewarded" with a green loading bar; links could indicate in contextual menus whether the site in question is fast or slow.

This will benefit users in a number of ways: the feature may make it clear, for example, that the problem with slowness on a particular site is not in the person's connection, but in the page itself. And over time, these pointers can create a culture that values ‚Äč‚Äčthe fastest, most well-developed sites, encouraging digital professionals to engage in faster web experiences.

The Chrome team remembers that they maintain a web-based learning platform entirely dedicated to developers and webmasters who want to learn how to develop and maintain faster, lighter websites. From there you can find guides and code examples to create online experiences with minimal or instant loading which is always good news for us users.
