Ever wonder how fast your website (or any other website) loads from different locations around the world? Especially if your site relies in part on third party content, the user experience at various cities can be very different indeed!
Using our WatchMouse Performance Monitoring service API, Loads.in is a convenient webmaster tool that allows you to measure just how fast a website loads in a real browser from over 50 locations worldwide – on every continent except Antarctica!
The free, Loads.in tool checks your site utilizing a real browser, and provides snapshots and waterfall charts for each check. A selection of browser profiles is available too, and include Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox
Simply enter the full URL of the page you want to check in Loads.in, and the page is retrieved by a browser at a random location. For each subsequent check you can choose a specific location*.
The Loads.in results presented include:
- The page load time of the website
- Snapshots at different times during the loading of the page
- Errors or warnings if they occur
- A complete timing breakdown of all elements of your page in a “waterfall chart”
- The option to download the timing results in the HTTP Archive (HAR) format
*Locations include: Amsterdam, Antwerp, Cologne, Copenhagen, Dublin, Glasgow, Groningen, Lille, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Manchester, Munich, Oslo, Padova, Paris, Stockholm, Zurich, Bucharest, Kharkov (Ukraine), Krakow, Moscow, Vilnius (Lithuania), Melbourne, Sydney, Cape Town, Bangkok, Haifa (Israel), Jakarta, Kuala Lampur, Mumbai, Nagano, Shanghai, Singapore, Guadalajara, Vancouver, Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Florida and NYC.
