Weekly Platform News: Impact of Third-Party Code, Passive Mixed Content, Countries with the Slowest Connections

In this week’s roundup, Lighthouse sheds light on third-party scripts, insecure resources will get blocked on secure sites, and many country connection speeds are still trying to catch up to others… literally.


Measure the impact of third-party code during page load

Lighthouse, Chrome’s built-in auditing tool, now shows a warning when the impact of third-party code on page load performance is too high. The pre-existing “Third-party usage” diagnostic audit will now fail if the total main-thread blocking time caused by third-parties is larger than 250ms during page load.

Note: This feature was added in Lighthouse version 5.3.0, which is currently available in Chrome Canary.

Passive mixed content is coming to an end

Currently, browsers still allow web pages loaded over a secure connection (HTTPS) to load images, videos, and audio over an insecure connection. Such insecurely-loaded resources on securely-loaded pages are known as “passive mixed content,” and they represent a security and privacy risk.

An insecurely-loaded image can allow an attacker to communicate incorrect information to the user (e.g., a fabricated stock chart), mutate client-side state (e.g., set a cookie), or induce the user to take an unintended action (e.g., changing the label on a button).

Starting next February, Chrome will auto-upgrade all passive mixed content to https:, and resources that fail to load over https: will be blocked. According to data from Chrome Beta, auto-upgrade currently fails for about 30% of image loads.

Fast connections are still not common in many countries

Data from Chrome UX Report shows that there are still many countries and territories in the world where most people access the Internet over a 3G or slower connection. (This includes a number of small island nations that are not visible on this map.)

The Impact of Team Collaboration and Communication on Projects

(This is a sponsored post.)

The CSS-Tricks team was cracking up the other day when Miranda introduced us to something called “swoop and poop.” That was a new term for most of us, but tell me if you’ve ever experienced this for yourself.

The idea is that someone in an organization — usually someone higher up on the chain, like a manager or director — has had no involvement in a project but “swoops” into a review session for it (like a team demo) and “poops” all over the work that’s been done. You know, things like colors in the design, why we’re using this framework versus that, or any number of various things that pay no mind to the scope of the project or the meeting. And it’s not like anyone want to push back on a HiPPO.

We then all turned to Chris because, well, case in point. Just kidding!

The thing about “swoop and poop” is that it’s totally avoidable. Sure, it’s a funny thing to say and there’s a lot of truth in it, but the issue really comes down to a lack of transparency and communication.

That’s where a system like monday.com can swoop in and make things shine. It’s a project management platform that’s more than project management. It has all the time tracking, milestones, calendars and task lists that you might expect, but there’s a lot more to help facilitate better collaboration and communication among — not just the immediate team members of a project — but everyone across the organization.

We’re talking about things like shared assets, comments and chat to help everyone on the team communicate better. Even better, monday.com puts all of these things in a central place so everyone has access to it. And if you feel out of the loop on a project, simply check your personalized news feed to catch up on all the latest activity for the things that directly affect your work.

That’s exactly the sort of remedy that prevents any ol’ person from swooping into a meeting and dropping bombs all over the work. By capturing important details, assets, decisions, discussions, budgets and everything else you could ever need on a project, monday.com makes it tough to be out of the loop, which leads to better team collaboration and communication.

Try monday.com and experience the difference better communication makes. It’s free to sign up, so go ahead and give it a spin.
