Broadly speaking, there are a two approaches to testing website speed:
It's best to test your website using both methods.
A real browser, on the other hand, is a web browser that is actually installed on your computer. Real browsers can render web pages correctly and support all the same plugins and extensions as an emulated browser. However, real browsers may be more resource-intensive than emulated browsers, and they may not run on all platforms.
Although real browsers would seemingly be more accurate, there can be advantages to simulating a broader variety of scenarios using an emulated browser. Therefore, it is often helpful to test the speed of your website using each approach to compare the results and recommendations.
GTmetrix Performance Score often produces similar results as Google PageSpeed Insights. However, it is possible that significant variations between these tools can occur. So, what are the differences between them?
GTmetrix loads your website using an unthrottled connection on custom-built hardware by using a real browser that can be customized according to your needs such as location, connection speed, screen resolution, etc.
Google’s PageSpeed Insights uses emulated browsers to launch performance tests that simulate how your page would load under different network conditions (for example, desktop and mobile). You can't change the test options like location, connection speed, screen resolution, etc.More
