Search engines, speed tests, and debugging at Google

Hey folks,

Welcome back to Performance Matters 👋 This week, we're inspired by Google's announcement that page experience signals would be included in Google Search ranking from May 2021. This should come as no surprise, but it's a timely reminder to keep pushing for speed and adopting new performance metrics.

We've also released Raygun's October launch notes if you want to catch up on what we've been shipping 🚀
