Development Tools Introduction to Front End Performance Optimization Measuring Performance Google PageSpeed

i cannot find the link to download the google extension for google pagespeed?

it leads to to a different page than on the video.

Hey Caroline, the video is quite outdated and the extension has since been depracated - depraced extension

You can instead go to PageSpeed Insights to analyze your webpage or use Google Lighthouse which is built into the Chrome Developer Tools under Audits tab.

Hope this helps :)
