The Firefox Profiler visualizes performance data recorded from web browsers. It is a tool designed to consume performance profiles from the Gecko Profiler but can visualize data from any profiler able to output in JSON. The interface is a web application built using React and Redux and runs entirely client-side.
This project was previously called perf.html and Cleopatra.
This project is live on https://profiler.firefox.com/. The website includes instructions on how to get going to start recording and viewing performance profiles.
Accessibility: Assistive technology support
The Profiler was tested with recent versions of the following assistive technology:
If you experience problems using any of the above technologies, please file a bug.
If you would like to help us test on other assistive technologies or improve the existing code, we would love your contributions!
