Google Released Page Speed for Firefox

By Daniel Scocco

Google just released a Firefox/Firebug add-on called Page Speed. It is basically a tool that will help you improve the loading performance of your website. After you run it, you will see a list with all the factors that would make your site load faster, with an image illustrating whether or not your website checks for each.

There are some similar plugins available for Firefox, but this one seems to be more robust. It checks for a wide range of optimization steps, including proxy caching, DNS lookups, CSS combination, Javascript loading and parallel downloads. Worth a try.

    This looks like a great addition to Firebug! I’ll definitely be using it, I know there are plenty of things slowing my blog down so it’ll be interesting to see what I can do!

    google should put more attention in chorme.

  • Mr. I

    WOW! Wait, why am I saying that? It seems lie Google releases everything for IE and Firefox. I use Opera and 90% of Google services do not work well! Those which do, use previous versions!
    Anyway, good tool from Google!

  • Tom Bradshaw

    Great add on from the read. Going to try it out. So wonder what will Google come up next. It is strange that they developed one for Mozilla as they already have launched their own browser, chrome.

  • Premium Acia

    Very nice. Now I just need to do what it says.

  • Veera

    Page Speed is really impressive. It’s almost similar to YSlow, but provides much more detailed analysis on web pages.

  • Boerne Search

    It does sound like a good tool. But I have never been able to get into Firefox. I have worked on the internet for amost 9 years now and I have always used IE. But now i hate the new IE. So I am trying to force myself into using Firefox. I guess old habits die hard.

  • BloggerDaily

    wow!

    it’s time to analyze all my sites! thanks a lot! =D

  • Zemalf

    thanks a lot for sharing this! I’ve been using Firebug and web analyzer for ages now, but this tool was very fast and gave plain-english analysis and advice what should be optimized. I think every blogger and webmaster should at least try this tool if they have not done any performance analysis before. great stuff!

  • Jocuri Copii

    I have tried the Page Speed functionality in FireBug and it has helped me quite a lot in optimizing my site’s page loading speed. I have done everything that I could to optimize my site, except for the things that should be done by the hosting company like DNS lookups or gzip compression.
