Enter the Chrome User experience Report, a public dataset of key user expertise metrics gleaned from Chrome users who have opted in to usage statistic reporting.
The report offers up data from 10,000 origins and lets developers see how Chrome users expertise the net from a large variety of hardware, software and networks. Google hopes the report can facilitate developers see where they are doing well, identify areas for improvement and identify trends and advancements over time. At the moment the dataset focuses on loading metrics, but during a blog post on the release, Google says it hopes to expand coverage in future iterations.
