With this, we understand that user experience is intrinsic part of customer experience. Gone are the days, when performance was just an afterthought. Nowadays, every modification of page boils down to minification of each element of page, page optimization, scripts concatenation and more, which needs to be addressed quite often.
UX isn’t just a designing concern: it affects the overall user experience of website everything from accessibility and usability to search engine optimization and load time. Thus, when drawing it in a workflow, certain design decisions have to be notified basis of their performance implications.
Performance depends on the UI/UX designing and development, Testing and finally optimization. So are these needs quantifiable using a single technology?
The answer is- it is quantifiable with Front-end Engineering.

Apparently, while monitoring the backend and frontend activities of LinkedIn page, we found some essential statistics showing the time frontend activities consume (in microseconds) and increase the load time of the application.
There’s a visible difference between frontend and backend activities. Typically, backend processes consumes shorter time since it includes database lookups, remote web service calls, all attached together with HTML. The frontend phases encompass executing Java Scripts, rendering pages, loading time, concatenating scripts and much more.
The reason behind the slow performance of the website revolves around multiple designing and developing aspects such as:
- Slow web-front delivery
- Heavy images and sluggish rendering
- Expensive Java scripts
- Code splitting
- No lucrative Web icons
