Lighthouse Data Point Discrepancies

Not sure if this is a Lighthouse extension or a Google API issue, but I just ran the lighthouse extension and an external Lighthouse in an incognito browser window on the same website and the data points between the two don’t even come close.

Hey @kwsim ,

The difference in the Performance score is to be expected.
The Lighthouse test in Chrome Dev tools uses your internet connection, while the Lighthouse test on MainWP Dashboard uses the server’s internet connection where the Dashboard is hosted.

The difference in other scores might be occurring because there might be slight differences between the algorithm in API we are using and the algorithm in Chrome Dev tools.
Google is constantly updating those algorithms, so perhaps they are not fully synchronized.
