In conjunction with the rapid growth of mobile devices, web developers are faced with optimization obstacles in providing their products and services to mobile consumers through rich Internet applications. Programmers utilize available research and tools to effectively guarantee optimal performance of their web applications on wide sets of devices. Due the lack of adequate information on rendering performance of mobile browsers, developers either use a pre-existing framework which constrains their application design or expend many hours in code refactoring in attempts to ensure optimal performance of their web applications. To this end, a framework is developed for identifying factors which might lead to significant lag or bottlenecks in web applications. A small web application is used to showcase the feasibility of integrating this framework on pre-existing web applications in order to assess performance of user devices in real-time.
