Open Source Browser Performance Tool For IE By MySpace

MySpace is sharing an open source project named MySpace’s Performance Tracker which is an Internet Explorer plugin for capturing and measuring possible bottlenecks on webpages.

Myspace's Performance Tracker

The plugin is a great helper to developers for:

  • measure the CPU hit and memory footprint of your pages
  • reviewing screenshots of the page while it renders
  • reviewing rendered HTML on each point of the page’s lifecycle
  • viewing estimates of the time it takes to render each section of the page in different connection speeds
  • validating the content of pages against a set of proven “best practice” rules of web development.

P.S. The tool is currently in pre-alpha state.

Requirements: Windows XP+, IE6+, Adobe Flash Player 9+, Microsoft .Net framework 2.0
