    Google just released this tool, it's currently in beta but it'll still provide some good info.

    Tested this on a few sites I own, powered by xenForo. To everyone else: The results are turning up different end results, so keep that in mind when you try this out.

    Does this do/show more than what Lighthouse audit already does in Chrome's dev tools?

    yes it's using newer version of Google Lighthouse v4.00 alpha in web.dev so more bugs that Google Lighthouse official version.

    Out of curiosity, has anyone used one of these tools on a large default XenForo forum before and after conversion from XF 1 to XF 2? Know of any such comparisons Chris DChris D?

    would be hard seeing as Google PageSpeed Insights v5 only was released a few days ago and it's tests are very different to v4 previously used. Unless forum upgrade happened this week after v5 was released :)

    actually if you can script it you can query the old Google PageSpeed Insights v4 and new v5 APIs and get results for both to compare so if you did do upgrade you can run tests against v4 and v5 API before and after upgrade.

    My gitools.sh and gitools_v5.sh scripts allow such querying and running tests for Google PageSpeed Insights v4 and v5 APIs along with GTMetrix and Webpagetest.org APIs for such https://github.com/centminmod/google-insights-api-tools.

    My scripts focus on the metrics not the scores as that is what is important. v5 script lists javascript execution times too as Time to interactive and speedindex are heavily weighted to determine the v5 mobile and desktop performance score.

    example v5 run against official Xenforo forum for both mobile and desktop

    Code:
    ./gitools_v5.sh all https://xenforo.com/community/
