web.dev at I/O 2019

New look. New docs. New blog!

With I/O right around the corner, we wanted to sneak out a quick update to let you know what we've been working on since our beta launch at Chrome Dev Summit.

New look

We want web.dev to be a best-in-class reading experience—something that folks look forward to opening on their phones, tablets, and desktops.

In this iteration, we launched a new design with improved typography and a bit more visual punch. We have a number of UI features still in the backlog that we plan to ship in the coming months, but we hope you like this new visual style 💅

Improved Lighthouse support

Lighthouse performance cover

In the Learn section, we've rolled out new Lighthouse audit docs with updated images, scoring explainers, and links to guides which dive deeper into specific topics.

We've also connected these docs to our measure tool so when you audit your site you should have a better understanding of what each result means and how to fix it.

New blog!

Last, but not least, we have our new blog.

Not that long ago, our team used to produce a site called HTML5Rocks. HTML5Rocks always felt like a group of folks coming together to share their collective excitement about what was possible on the web.

As we've been building web.dev, we've often said that we want to bring back some of that "HTML5Rocks magic ✨". Get people excited about what's possible, and use new services like Glitch to let them remix and play with running code. So for the web.dev blog, we're making it our mission to keep things open, experimental, and fun 👩‍🔬

We're really excited for this year's I/O, so definitely check back in the days and weeks ahead as we roll out new content. There's a boatload of stuff coming and we can't wait to share it with you.

Thanks! 👋
