Although Google’s Open Source Lighthouse project was integrated into Chrome in early 2017, I had yet to explore and experiment with this feature. It was only after I accidentally stumbled upon it that I realized it provided me with new and interesting insights into my web apps.

This blog post is a reflection of what I have learned doing the audit on my portfolio website home page (https://jeremyshaw.co.nz/).
