Page Speed

As I’m sure you know already, Google’s algorithm has been taking into account the speed of the Web sites checked for quite a while. Obviously, the speed of a page/website doesn’t only depend on the raw speed of the server hosting it, since there’s much more to keep in mind than that, and Page Speed was always one of the best tools to help you evaluate your websites’ performance…

… only that today we’re talking about Google’s popular Firebug/Chrome addon with a twist: Page Speed just got a brand new online version that offers similar functionality to the addon mentioned above, only that it can be used on any Web browser. Using it is really straightforward – all you have to do is enter the URL you want to check, choose if you want to get suggestions for improving your site’s speed on desktop or mobile devices, then browse the results.

If the above doesn’t seem clear enough, then you definitely have to take a look at Page Speed or… just read some of that official mumbo-jumbo right now, despite the fact it doesn’t actually say anything new: Page Speed “is a web-based tool that allows users to analyze pages at any time, in any browser, without downloading an extension. It also features Page Speed Mobile analysis, which lets developers analyze their site as viewed by a mobile browser, and get suggestions specific to mobile optimization.” Got it? Get to it! 😉
