Google Chrome To Identify and Label Slow Websites

Demonstrators Protest Against Google Campus

It's the badge of shame; Google announced in a blog post that the company's been experimenting with labeling websites that either load fast or slow for users with some type of badge.

Google will determine which sites load slowly and flag them, according to The Verge. The tech giant is also looking at ways to help you see which sites load slowly based on your own hardware or network.

However advanced the company, the badging system sounds like a simple Nintendo power bar. Once you enter a site, there will be a bar that indicates "green" if it loads at a good pace or "red" if Google thinks you're going to be waiting a while to see the content.
