NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

Lighthouse is a tool written by Google to assess web applications for adherence to Progressive Web App standards. This year's Lighthouse 2.0 release adds performance metrics and accessibility checks to the basic toolset. This added functionality has now been incorporated into the standard Chrome developer tools under the audit tab. Lighthouse 2.0 is yet another beneficiary of Chrome's headless mode. This provides an alternative to Pa11y and similar tools for running accessibility checks in a continuous integration pipeline, since the tool can be run from the command line or standalone as a Node.js application.
