Peak Performance

Site performance has a tangible impact on the success of your business. Astro sites can be up to 40% faster and use 90% less JavaScript compared to leading static site generators.

87% of websites currently fail Google's Core Web Vitals (CWV) benchmark. Astro is on a mission to change that.

Astro is really shaping up to be one of the formative ways to build mostly-static sites.
