watir-performance

Gem Version Build Status

Successor to 90kts:watir-webdriver-performance for Watir as opposed to watir-webdriver.

The Watir-Performance aims to provide a set of navigation timing metrics for Watir actions using a W3C page performance standard. This is a perfect solution to capture response time metrics, and it’s very straightforward to do. Works for Chrome, Firefox, Edge and IE9 and up. Currently no Safari support.

This gem collects and summarises metrics speficied in the W3C:Navigation web performance specifications when using watir and a compatible browser.

Example output of browser.performance

All summary times are in milliseconds, and are an abstraction of the w3c web performance specification.
