Cypress (via) Promising looking new open source testing framework for full-blown web integration testing—a modern alternative to Selenium.

WPO Stats (via) “Case studies and experiments demonstrating the impact of web performance optimization (WPO) on user experience and business metrics.“ # 1:36 am
