I am auditing my site’s performance to prepare for Google’s Core Web Vitals. One interesting metric is how the LiveChat WordPress Plugin appears to affect the performance score.
As a preliminary step, I am testing the current page performance with the Lighthouse tab in the dev tools. I ran the tool numerous times in Google Incognito. On average, the page performance score significantly increases by 22% when the plugin is deactivated.
Mobile Test Page - Performance Score 76
Mobile Test Page - Performance Score 60
Can your team provide how the plugin influences page speed and how can I reduce the the load?
