  5. https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ PageSpeed Insights reports on the performance of a page on both mobile and desktop devices, and provides suggestions on how that page may be improved. PSI provides both lab and field data about a page. Lab data is useful for debugging performance issues, as it is collected in a controlled environment. However, it may not capture real-world bottlenecks. Field data is useful for capturing true, real-world user experience — but has a more limited set of metrics. See How to Think about Speed Tools for more information on the 2 types of data.
