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

Replacement for Google Chrome PageSpeed Insights

Google Developers implemented a change: "PageSpeed Insights for Google Chrome has been deprecated. Please use the online version of PageSpeed Insights."

Web site for the tool: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/

(basically Google eliminated the Chrome plugin and replaced it with a web site tool)

There is also a commercial tool from Verizon: Edge Optimizer

I have recently used the developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ and it worked very well. It gives great insight to what is working well to what needs to be changed and everything in between. It also gives you a link to documentation on how to make the needed corrections.

PageSpeed does work well. It's just that the video here is a bit deprecated...

Another alternative might be AWRStudyr - also a free Chrome extension - http://www.awrstudyr.com/ It gives pagespeed on both mobile and desktop, and additional information on what can be done to improve the score. The extension basically pulls the information from the same source - Google's tool, but it's an extension - therefore faster to use for multiple check-ups.
