Here is the latest collection of must-read articles for the weekend. We regularly publish these lists with what we hope is useful and interesting content for you. The topics vary but we try to include website monitoring, web performance, devops, and more.

This week we have selected articles on front-end latency, high-performance browser networking, and more.
