Collect First Input Timing
Open, HighPublic


This gives us First Input Delay, and more information.

Google seems to be judging us by FID, as it's found in CrUX and now in their Search Console Speed Report. They are now pushing the newer Total Blocking Time, but based on its existing prevalence, it seems likely that search ranking might take FID into account and not TBT yet.

If we just care about Chrome we can use the performance observer for
first-input, I've used it here - it supports buffered too so we don't have to add things in head.

It was released in 77 if that's enough for us, then at least we can start tracking it there?

Oh ok, perfect. Yes, let's do that.
