Today we’re excited to announce the open beta for the new HTTP Archive website. It’s more than just a fresh coat of paint: we’ve upgraded how you research web stats and trends with combined desktop and mobile reporting, introduced new report structure and new data visualization capabilities, improved documentation, made the site mobile friendly, and lots more.
Best of all, new reports are now powered directly by our public dataset on BigQuery. This change enables us to generate reports—and iterate on their definitions much faster—based on a much richer set of metrics available in the HAR files, Lighthouse reports, and deep trace files that we record as part of the crawl. With this new infrastructure we can now more easily surface new and more powerful reports. For example, in the initial beta release we’re adding metrics like Time to Consistently Interactive (TTCI) and First Meaningful Paint (FMP).

If you have any suggestions or feedback, please let us know here, or open an issue GitHub. We’d love to hear your ideas on how we can improve HTTP Archive. And if you’re feeling motivated, the code is all open source and we’d welcome your help and contributions!
Rick, on behalf of the HTTP Archive team
