I'm weighing up the pros and cons of using a particular web font combination, and am looking to see exactly how much weight it'll add to this site for first time visitors. It's a Google font, and they have this SVG meter labelled
Page load, subtitled
Impact on page load time (example):
So, this combination of web fonts will have 118... impacts on page load time? That number appears to be completely unlabelled.
What is it? 118 kilobytes? 118 miliseconds based on an average connection? 118 days removed from a user's lifespan from the stress of sitting gnashing their teeth waiting for the text to show?
I can't see any clue. I've even snooped around in the SVG code of the graphic looking for a descriptive label or element ID. The closest is on the svg tag itself -
aria-label="A chart.", and a weird hidden tag saying
GViz is great.
The actual tff files for the two weights I was looking at are 251kb combined uncompressed, so it's possible it's the compressed weight in KBs.
