I frequently used to switch to to use these since there were no alternatives available for . However, that was until today when Yahoo officially released the YSlow for Google Chrome.

YSlow for Google Chrome works similarly to the and displays users with performance ratings and grades for a website. Most of the interface will be familiar to regular users, however, there are some new features in YSlow for Chrome which includes the ability to compare YSlow results for multiple results. Some of the other feature highlights include:

  • User experience consistent with YSlow for Firefox.
  • Added the ability to detect post onload components, including for pages that prevent itself from being embedded and/or iframed. (experimental)
  • Support for 3 main rulesets: Default YSlow V2, Classic V1, and Small Site or Blog as well as the ability to create new ones based on these 3.
  • Offenders in CDN rule are now listed as domains only.
  • Runs multiple YSlow instances (new windows). This feature is excellent for comparing YSlow results for different pages side-by-side as shown below.

This is definitely great news and one more reason to use Google Chrome. It has definitely come a long way to become one of the best browsers available today and will further increase market share.

The browser wars are about to get exciting  Release Candidate already out along with the Release Candidate for Internet Explorer 9. Google Chrome 10 was also released to users yesterday and with Opera 11.10 already in the works it would be really hard to make a choice when it comes to using a web browser.
