This release brings updates and improvements to the HAR viewer/Waterfall Chart.
Waterfall Charts now have column headers that can be sorted ascending or descending.
This makes it easy to find large requests by file size or requests from the same domain.
New Filtering Options for Waterfall Chart
We’ve added the ability to filter requests by type using our quick filters.
This is great for quickly viewing sets of similar types of requests at a glance.
You can also filter requests by keyword – helpful for finding uniquely named requests or requests from a specific third-party.
Regular expressions (regex) are also supported by typing regexp: into the keyword filter field.
Advanced users can also utilize Firefox Devtools Network syntax to filter on specific request types. See the types of properties you can filter by here: Network request list: Filter by Properties
These new filtering options aim give you an even more enhanced way to analyze your Waterfall Chart. Still fuzzy on analyzing Waterfall Charts? Read our beginner’s guide on How to Analyze Waterfall Charts.
Updated Visual Design for Waterfall Chart
Along with adding filters and sorting, a slight visual update was done to make styles more consistent as well as adjusted some UX with regards to reading a Waterfall Chart.
The design of our Waterfall Chart has been largely left unchanged since our last major redesign. Have a look at a few changes here:
Timing bar height change
Request hover style adjustment
Request/Response header detail adjustment
These tweaks aim to bring the Waterfall Chart to be more inline with the rest of the design of GTmetrix.
- Adjusted PRO API credit allotment logic
Credits refill within 15 minutes upon upgrade now instead of next day.
