Google Webmaster Tools Adds Site Performance Tool
Page loading speed has become more of a critical issue recently, and even Google has included it as a factor when determining page rank for websites. This week Google added a Site Performance Tool to its Webmaster Tools to help web developers get their sites up to speed.
Google's Site Performance Tool is a tracking and stats tool that is executed as a Firefox add-on. It can be accessed via the Google Labs menu in Google Webmaster Tools. Developers will need to be using Firefox along with the Firebug add-on in order to use the new tool.
