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.
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
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
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.
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.
