Is SimpleReach slowing down my site?

 

You might have noticed edge.simplereach.com just hanging around in your browser's status bar on your site, making you think to yourself, “Is this little code slowing down my site?!”

Of course not!

In order to get you the insights you want, we place our code on your page. One of the metrics we track is engaged time, which sends out pings every few seconds to determine whether a user is interacting with your page or taking a mid-scroll siesta.

When a browser loads content, it simultaneously queues up what's supposed to happen next. As each of these requests fire off, our code waits its turn in line and appears in your status bar. Because our code drops an iframe on the page through which all requests happen, these requests load independently of your content and have absolutely no effect on your site's load speeds.
