PerformanceMark is an interface for PerformanceEntry objects with an entryType of "mark".

Entries of this type are typically created by calling performance.mark() to add a named DOMHighResTimeStamp (the mark) to the browser's performance timeline. To create a performance mark that isn't added to the browser's performance timeline, use the constructor.
