What happened to Above the Fold Time (AFT) numbers? - pganti - 08-12-2013 04:39 PM

Previously we had such numbers for above the fold metrics which I do not see anymore. Is it available? If not, why?

No, the old AFT measurement was replaced with the Speed Index which is a much better representation of user experience. There is a "Visually Complete" which is a point-in-time measurement when the above-the-fold was 100% complete but I don't recommend focusing on that - single pixel changes can push the time out (which was also a problem with AFT).

Cool. Thanks a bunch for the clarification, Speed Index it is :-)
