Developers already have access to a number of tools that let them see how real-world users experience their websites, but until now they weren't able to see how their website user experience compared to others. Enter the Chrome User Experience Report, a public dataset of key user experience metrics gleaned from Chrome users who have opted in to usage statistic reporting.

The report offers up data from 10,000 origins and lets developers see how Chrome users experience the web from a wide variety of hardware, software and networks. Google hopes the report will help developers see where they're doing well, identify areas for improvement and identify trends and advancements over time. At the moment the dataset focuses on loading metrics, but in a blog post on the release, Google says it hopes to expand coverage in future iterations.
