Speed testing your web site with AOL Pagetest

I'm at Velocity 2008 right now and the keynote I was most excited about this morning introduced http://webpagetest.org/.

This site accepts a URL which it loads over a network connection with the speed of your choice. After loading the site it offers you a waterfall graph of page elements, a screenshot so you can see if it loaded correctly, and automatic comparisons to previous page loads to see how caching affects your site.

The code behind the page is based on the open source AOL Pagetest which means it can be modified as needed. I think I heard Ryan say something about automated testing over time with historical graphs and email alerts? :)

This is a static site. If you have any comments please start a thread in the fediverse and tag me or send an email.
