The full announcement is over at the Pingdom blog, but we thought this was interesting enough to all of you that we included a shorter announcement here in Royal Pingdom as well.
After more than six million performed tests, we thought it was time to give version 1.0 of our popular Full Page Speed Test in Pingdom Tools a well-earned break. Actually, we’re giving it a full retirement, umbrella drinks and sunny beaches included. But don’t worry, version 2.0 of the Full Page Test is here to save the day! It’s still in beta, a few tweaks remain, but it’s fully functional so don’t hesitate to give it a spin.
This new Full Page Test is still completely free to use. It still helps you profile your website’s performance. But now it’s even better.
When we say it’s better, we really mean it. We’ve rebuilt the Full Page Test from scratch and have worked hard to make this brand new version super useful to you. Although we may be a bit biased – it’s our baby, after all – we think it’s pretty awesome. The ultimate judges will of course be you, our users, but we suspect you’ll agree with us once you’ve tried it out.
Analyze and optimize website performance
The whole point of our Full Page Test tool is to help you analyze the load speed of your websites and learn how to make them faster. With the help of this tool you can identify what about a web page is fast, slow, too big, what best practices you’re not following, and so on. We have tried to make it useful both to experts and novices alike.
In short, we want it to be a free, easy-to-use tool to help webmasters and web developers everywhere optimize the performance of their websites.
