It can be helpful when automating tests, metrics, and integration tools to know not only how much JavaScript there is on a page but to calculate how much is not being used. We are able to calculate the percentage of JS used by getting metrics from the window object.

Hi Tyler. Thanks a bunch for this video. I am not sure I am able to interpret the data in a meaningful way. For example I have a simple static site as my personal page right now http://yvkschaefer.github.io/ (https://github.com/yvkschaefer/yvkschaefer.github.io), and I don't even have any .js files, yet it still tells me that 45% of the JS is unused. Can you help me understand?
