Web app accessibility, performance, security, seo and quality can generally be performed and measured in one of two ways:
- Server-side: on a consistent, controlled environment.
- Client-side: on real users actually loading and interacting with the page.
Performing audits on the server-side isn’t necessarily reflective of how all users experience your site in reality. The condition of a site can vary dramatically based on a user’s device capabilities, network conditions, or people may be experiencing varying degrees of auditory, cognitive, physical, speech, and visual disabilities. It can also vary based on whether (or how) a user is interacting with the site. The only way to truly know how your site performs for your users is to actually measure its conditions as those users are loading and interacting with it.
This approach means that we aren’t crawling your website, but all audits are being performed directly on your site. Read more about Active Scanning Mode.
