Page Speed Online looks like a nifty service specially when Google s behind it. I typically use or Pingbrigade to test web page load speeds.


hey Cell Travis,

just tried, nice app indeed. thanks!


Page Speed Online – another great tool. For some reason it reminds me of Google Tools (layout) :)

Otipo – interesting idea. However i think that for most companies it would be something like +1 tool (registers and paper will stay). So Otipo has a great battle ahead :) Good Luck.
