Google Released Page Speed for Firefox

Daniel

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.

    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.

  • 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!

  • BloggerDaily

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

    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.

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

  • Premium Acia

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

  • InternetHowBlog

    wow. it seems like ver useful tool to improve the performance of my blog. thanks for sharing Daniel

  • FestivalPlanet

    This is a very useful tool, thank you! i like many bloggers have many badges and add ons which can really slow my website down. Now is there an add on to make Firefox load faster? haha 🙂

  • Satish Gandham

    Installed it just now.
    Looks like a gr8 add on.

  • Ajith Edassery

  • Tom Bradshaw

    Looks like a great add-on, will have to give it a go!

  • pestaa

    Wow, an awful copy of Yslow. Google, please, don’t let us down next time.

  • 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!

  • bilin

    google should put more attention in chorme.

  • Lee Milthorpe

    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!
