I’m curious - could you explain that impact? I use Matomo and had not noticed it.

Lets just say their best-practices was last updated sometime in the early 2000s. It’s 2018 and their client-side tracker is synchronously executed and holds up the entire page.

This is just plain wrong. Matomo is async by default[0].

I appreciate the difficulty of considering how to monetize content that you put a lot of effort in to, but spreading misinformation on the very same topics you are writing about is harmful and short-sighted. Your responses here moved me from “this seems like an interesting blog to follow” to “nope”.

This seems to contradict Findus23 claim that it loads async. Regardless, asnyc="async" can be manually added to script tags.
