OAuth – The Standard That Isn’t

For our signed in users, and if you haven't signed up for a free account, you really should - you get much better access to the data, we've had a slight change to the database and we're now recording the latency of test failures as well as passes. For the astute among you, you'll notice that some APIs are showing error rates but not actually showing error latencies. That's because we're only reporting actual server errors on the report, so that's a 4XX or 5XX response from an API rather than something harder to diagnose like a timeout. As we've [...]
