Avoid chaining critical requests
From an energy efficiency perspective, avoiding critical request chains reduces the overall energy required to render a page by using loading time more efficiently without a serialized set of requests and allowing the user to begin interacting with the content earlier, potentially negating the need for any further rendering and energy consumption.
SCI = (E * I) + M per R
Software Carbon Intensity Spec
Avoiding chaining critical requests will impact SCI as follows:
E: Improved page rendering times will reduce the amount of energy needed to render the page
- There is an assumption that users are on modern web browsers that can support these types of requests.
- Some critical request chains may be necessary, the focus here is on avoidance and only using them when absolutely critical
