This stylesheet doesn't just include the code for the button component. It contains the CSS for all of Bootstrap's components. But you're not using any of the other Bootstrap components. So your page is downloading a bunch of CSS that it doesn't need. This extra CSS is a problem for the following reasons:
- The extra code slows down your page load. See Render-Blocking CSS.
- If a user accesses the page on a mobile device, the extra code uses up their cellular data.
Open the Coverage tab
- Open the Command Menu.
- Start typing
coverage, select the Show Coverage command, and then press Enter to run the command. The Coverage tab opens in the Drawer.
Record code coverage
- Click one of the following buttons in the Coverage tab:
- Click Start Instrumenting Coverage And Reload Page if you want to see what code is needed to load the page.
- Click Instrument Coverage if you want to see what code is used after interacting with the page.
- Click Stop Instrumenting Coverage And Show Results when you want to stop recording code coverage.
Analyze code coverage
The table in the Coverage tab shows you what resources were analyzed, and how much code is used within each resource. Click a row to open that resource in the Sources panel and see a line-by-line breakdown of used code and unused code. Any unused lines of code will have a red line at the beginning.
- The URL column is the URL of the resource that was analyzed.
- The Total Bytes column is the total size of the resource in bytes.
- The Unused Bytes column is the number of bytes that weren't used.
- The last, unnamed column is a visualization of the Total Bytes and Unused Bytes columns. The red section of the bar is unused bytes. The green section is used bytes.
