For over a decade now, the web community has been asking the question, “Are Single Page Apps faster?”

The arguments on each side are based mostly on a mixture of belief and anecdote, since we didn’t have the data to answer these questions. Until now.

In this talk, we will discuss new technologies in the web browser that allow us to measure performance metrics for Single Page Apps in the same way as for Multipage Apps. We’ll look at their functionality, how they work, and how you can use them to improve the performance of your SPA.

Yoav Weiss has been working on mobile web performance for longer than he cares to admit, on the server side as well as in browsers. He now works as part of Google’s Chrome team, helping to fix web performance once and for all.

He takes image bloat on the web as a personal insult, which is why he joined the Responsive Images Community Group and implemented the various responsive images features in Blink and WebKit. That was his gateway drug into the wonderfully complex world of browsers and standards.

When he’s not writing code or web standard proposals, he’s probably biking around the French countryside, wandering the Alps, or playing board games with his family.
