Not currently. You can share Chrome dev tools timelines that you record locally for one-off cases so I'm not sure how much value WPT could add: https://chromedevtools.github.io/timeline-viewer/

I would like to see Chrome Security Warnings.

For example, if the website is not using HTTPS and the site has a password, credit-card or email field, then Chrome will display NOT SECURE in the address bar.

I think it would be useful to display this as an audit finding. I know it's not a performance metric, but it is a user experience metric.

I think this would be simple to build because Chrome will give an alert in the Console log.

FWIW, WebPageTest already captures the console log. If you go to the screenshot view (click on the screenshot thumbnail) any console log messages should be displayed below the screen shot. They are also exposed through the API.

The non-performance stuff I mostly push to Lighthouse (which can be tested with WebPageTest). If Lighthouse doesn't already check for that it would be worth filing a github issue.

First, thank you for an excellent tool.

Currently, the impression given in the first results page at the top near the color-coded "First byte time", "Keep-alive", etc section for a particular page could be that everything is mostly OK, when in reality, the page may be a disaster from a user and loading point of view.

For example, this result:

https://www.webpagetest.org/result/171111_TH_9f310b13ddf8b77cd30e73ea143f722e/

Those color-coded results indicate most things are OK, when the page timed out after 145 seconds, there was 5.7 MB of stuff to download, and there were 1562 requests from 423 connections.

How about adding an "overall score" based on your "speed index" or "First interactive" or perhaps some weighted score of everything you track?

That would send a clearer message of the loading quality in cases such as this example.

I want to see WebSocket requests being captured and added in the results

Mobile device with international locations. (Came up for us trying to test a location that's GDPR enabled.)

Hi all. I do like use wpt! But recently I've tried to start my own private server, and I could say that it was damn hell for me. Your documentation for starting private instances (install and start agent especially) quite tough and vague. Finally I dropped down this. Could you please show some guides and tips on github. This would be great. Thank you! You've done a great job.

I love this site, actually nothing to complain about, however I feel like the style/css could do with some modernisation. It feels a little like a 1990's site. What do you think?
