Useful Add-On's in Firefox for Performance Test
      #705671 - 05/01/12 09:24 PM

Hi,

I have recently found few Add-On's in Mozilla Firefox which can be useful in Performance Testing. I have Listed few below.


1) YSlow with FireBug:- YSlow gives the no of page components for a particular page with Response time for each. It also gives grading and summary of what things are required for good performance.

2) Mustat:- it is analytic tool that gives information regarding the domain in terms of IP adress, No of servers, visits/day/week/month, SEO performance , traffic, page rank etc.

Please let me know your opinion on it and if there are any other add-ons then let me know.

Thanks

I've used YSlow before - it's pretty useful.

Firebug also is a necessity in my opinion. Sure it's more for developers, but it helped me when it came to understanding code.

Not necessarily an add-on, but I've found DynaTrace Ajax Edition to be very useful. It presents a lot of the same info Y-slow does, but I think it's organized better.

Pro's:
* It's free
* Information is well organized.
* Results compared against a set of best practices.
* Works with both Firefox and IE.
* Saves previous session info.

Cons:
* After a 5-day trial, they require you to register for an account (free).
* The free version only runs on older browser versions.
* No Chrome support (yet).
