HTTP Archive’s annual
state of the web report
Our mission is to combine the raw stats and trends of the HTTP Archive with the expertise of the web community. The Web Almanac is a comprehensive report on the state of the web, backed by real data and trusted web experts. The 2022 edition is comprised of 23 chapters spanning aspects of page content, user experience, publishing, and distribution.Start exploring
Good accessibility benefits everyone, not just those with disabilities. This is one of the core principles of Universal Design. After the COVID-19 pandemic started, more and more people have been reliant on the internet. Likewise, accessibility needs to improve as well, or we risk alienating a lot of people. Although the state of web accessibility still leaves a lot to be desired, we did see an overall improvement in sites’ accessibility this year.

Unless otherwise noted, the metrics in all of the 23 chapters of the 2022 Web Almanac are sourced from the HTTP Archive dataset. HTTP Archive is a community-run project that has been tracking how the web is built since 2010. Using WebPageTest and Lighthouse under the hood, metadata about nearly 8.4 million websites are tested monthly and included in a public BigQuery database for analysis. The June 2022 dataset was used as the basis for the 2022 Web Almanac’s metrics. For more information, see the Methodology page.Learn about our Methodology
