A Look At (AMP) Accelerated Mobile Page Performance
The driving force behind AMP is all about speed. But just how fast are AMP pages? Here's a real-word example.
One of AMP's key requirements to inline all CSS. So, before I set up the article framework, I built a simple CSS non-Boostrap framework for the page content and footer. While it is possible to use Bootstrap, I didn't want to spend a lot of time figuring out all the necessary CSS on the page (although I am sure this is possible).
This had a faster above-the-fold load time, with a Speed Index of 1264 ms. This represents a savings of 45%.
Is It Worth It?
Finally, AMP might light a fire within your organization to start thinking about web performance as a best practice - rather than an afterthought.
