The core foundations of a delightful web experience are...

  • Fast - It responds quickly to user interactions with silky smooth animations and no janky scrolling.
  • Integrated - The user doesn’t have to reach through the browser, it uses the full capabilities of the device to create an experience true to the device.
  • Reliable - Load instantly and reliably, never showing the downasaur, even in uncertain network conditions.
  • Engaging - Keeps the user coming back to the app with beautifully designed experiences that look and feel natural.

Delightful web experiences are...

Fast

Users don’t expect janky scrolling or slow load performance. Making your site fast is a process that starts with understanding how RAIL affects the performance of your site and how to use that to measure and improve your performance.

Integrated

User experiences on the web should feel like an integrated part of the user's device; instead of having to reach through a browser window, the experience should feel true to how the user interacts with the device.

Reliable

Users don’t expect the web to work without a network connect, and often don’t even bother to try when it’s a slow or intermittent connection. We need to change that perception. The web must be reliable.

Engaging

An engaging app goes beyond functional, but ensures that the whole experience is delightful making it easy for the user to do what they need to do. Using features like Web Push, it’s always up to date, and Notifications keeps users informed. It uses the right capabilities, at the right time, in a beautiful way.

What's new?

Capabilities
We strongly believe that every developer should have access to the capabilities they need to make a great web experience, and we are committed to a more capable web. Learn about some of the new APIs we're considering and how you can get involved.
WebAssembly Threads ready to try in Chrome 70
WebAssembly threads enable an application to make use of parallel threads running while sharing the same memory address space. This enables libraries and applications that rely on pthreads to be ported to run in the browser. This feature is being run under an origin-trial to solicit feedback from the developer community.

What's hot?

Web Components

Web Components are a new set of standards which let you create your own HTML elements. You can use them to build anything, from simple UI elements, to entire applications.
