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...

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.

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.

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.

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.
