How to render different bandwidth
      #697205 - 01/31/12 09:47 PM

During testing, I am supposed to check how the page loads/behaves in different network bandwidth. i.e. how the page will load in 56kbps, 128kbps, etc connection speed.

Could you please let me know any tool or add-ons that allows to render the page under different network bandwidth?

One way of doing this is to use a proxy. There are many out there, but the idea is to route your connection to a configurable proxy that you can set to adjust the bandwidth or selectively drop packets.

http://www.charlesproxy.com/ added this functionality recently. It would probably be the easiest to use if you are strictly interested in HTTP content.

One easy way can be to use a Firefox add-in

Here's a free cross-platform tool I use for testing under different bandwidths: http://www.dallaway.com/sloppy/
