Back/Forward Cache (bfcache) - A Performance Game Changer In Action...
"The bfcache is a significant browser-level performance optimization, and it entirely eliminates the layout shifts during page load, which for many sites is where most of their CLS occurs. The introduction of the bfcache caused the biggest improvement in CLS that we saw in 2022."(Source: Top Core Web Vitals recommendations for 2023 by Chrome Developer Relations Team)
The chart from HTTP Archives Technology Report visualizes why Google Developer Relations Team sees bfcache as a significant browser-level performance optimization that caused the biggest improvement in CLS in 2022.
Each line in the chart represents the percentage of sites using a certain technology that passes the Core Web Vitals test. Sites using bfcache (e. g. Lightspeed eComm, Shopify, Shopware & OpenCart) saw a huge bump of sites passing CWV between December 21 and January 22, while other technologies remain stagnant (e. g. Magento & BigCommerce). The later because these technology's / cart systems do not use bfcache.
It is time for your Magento store to get the same performance bump from bfcache as your competitors, right?
