Google Page Speed - Firefox/Firebug Add-On - Web Developer Tool

Yesterday google announced some new tools and services for web developers

We've just added new tools to the suite:

  • Web Elements allows your customers to enhance their websites with the ease of cut-and-paste. Webmasters can provide maps, real-time news, calendars, presentations, spreadsheets and YouTube videos on their sites. With the Conversation Element, websites can create more engagement with their communities. The Custom Search Element provides inline search over your own site (or others you specify) without having to write any code and various options to customize further.
  • Page Speed allows webmasters to measure the performance of their websites. Snappier websites help users find things faster; the recommendations from these latency tools allow hosters and webmasters to optimize website speed. These techniques can help hosters reduce resource use and optimize network bandwidth.
  • The Tips for Hosters page offers a set of tips for hosters for creating a richer website hosting platform. Hosters can improve the convenience and accessibility of tools, while at the same time saving platform costs and earning referral fees. Tips include the use of analytics tools such as Google Analytics to help webmasters understand their traffic and linguistic tools such as Google Translate to help websites reach a broader audience.

I'm impressed by Page Speed which is a Firefox/Firebug add-on for web developers. If you are familiar with Yahoo's YSlow (if not you should be) which is also a FF add-on it offers similar features in that it enables you to analyse the loading of web pages, rates how good the load time is and suggests how you could improve page load times.

A couple of features that I like that are not available in YSlow are:

Use Efficient CSS Selectors - lists those CSS selectors that may slow down the user's experience

 

 

 

Remove unused CSS - lists all the CSS that is not used in a page, great for helping you to remove CSS that is no longer used or refractor large CSS files.

 

 

 

Page Speed Activity - enables you to record your activity on a website over multiple pages and see what the browser is doing and spending time on.

 

 

I highly recommend checking out this add-on - I think it's a great tool.
