Too Many Web Pages Load Too Slowly… Use Yahoo’s YSlow

My internet connection in my apartment isn’t great so it seems like some Web pages load really slowly.  I’m also frequently in coffee shops sharing sharing wifi with 20 people.

The boys at Yahoo! have developed YSlow, an add-on to the Mozilla Firefox Extension Firebug.  It tests a Web page against a set of performance heuristics that they’ve developed to see if a Web page will load quickly.

I’m really impressed.  I’m adding this tool to my development toolbox.

(thanks Nate K.)
