Page Speed for Google Chrome browser is now launched, and helps Chrome users to get Page Speed performance suggestions to make their sites faster.
“It was critical that the same engine that powers the Page Speed Add-On for Firefox be used here as well. So we first built the Page Speed SDK, which we then integrated into the Chrome extension,” said Google.
Page Speed for Chrome retains the same core features as the Firefox add-on. In addition, there’re two major improvements appearing in this version first: “”?We’ve improved scoring and suggestion ordering to help web developers focus on higher-potential optimizations first. ?Plus, Page Speed now supports displaying localized rule results in 40 languages!” These improvements are part of Page Speed SDK, so they’ll also appear in the next release of Firefox add-on as well,” explains Google.
If your site serves different content based on the browser’s user agent, you now have a good method for page performance analysis as seen by different browsers, with Page Speed coverage for Firefox and Chrome through the extensions, and Internet Explorer via webpagetest.org, which integrates the Page Speed SDK.
