A must have tool for all web developers who care about performance

When optimizing web applications it is often a good idea to focus on the frontend.

Yslow is great Firefox addon analyzing web pages and checking some rules for high performance web sites. Unfortunately for IE there was so far no good solution.

Now there is!

AOL Pagetest is a great new free application that does similar things for IE.

for a very nice video introduction to AOL Pagetest.

AOL Pagetest even computes the page loading time, which Yslow doesn't (it's tricky). It seems to use an approach, similiar to the one we use.

Great tool!
