Largest Contenful Paint

Time it takes for most of the content to appear on a page

Web browsers make content appear to load quickly by loading it on your screen in chunks as its downloaded over the Internet. During this loading process, there’s always a moment where the browser loads the largest chunk of content in the screen that’s known as Largest Contentful Paint. To you as a reader, this is where it feels like most of the page is loaded and visible, but there may still be more loading that the browser has to perform before the page is completely loaded.

Legible News makes content appear quickly on screen by minimizing the complexity of the page layout and not loading large files like videos, images, and advertisements.
