In this era where Mobile, Web applications seem to be the next generation of innovation that will take over Desktops apps, a very clean and fast UI is needed to achieve this for each app.
Most Desktops apps utilize loading bar either using animation, number or anything moving just to keep the users aware that the task is up, running and completing. To make Web Apps more like them, a page load bar is used (it also increases page load speed) which can be set up easily either creating code from scratch or use already made code and implement.
Pace will automatically monitor your ajax requests, event loop lag, document ready state, and elements on your page to decide the progress. On ajax navigation, it will begin again! No need to hook into any of your code, progress is detected automatically.
