YSlow

August 13, 2007

I’ve been fiddling about with the new YSlow plugin. Basically its an addon for Firebug which analyzes web pages and tells you why they’re slow based on the rules for high performance web sites. Completely indispensable, and another good reason to switch to Firefox. YSlow gives you performance report card, HTTP/HTML summary and the list of components in the page, and its open source. Thank you.
