Page Speed Extension for Chrome

We are much awaiting for Page Speed Extension for Google chrome from past few months. Now it’s available in 40 languages. Page Speed is a good extension which clearly explains you technically what areas need to optimize to make your site faster.

Here are the detailed instructions to Install Page Speed for Chrome


 I feel comfortable using it on Firefox till now. Let’s see whether I will shift to chrome or not. Based on my experience I always used to get the following areas to optimize for my clients websites.

  • Optimize images
  • Minify HTML
  • Minify CSS
  • Minify JavaScript
  • Enable compression
  • Combine images into CSS sprites
  • Combine external JavaScript
  • Minimize DNS lookups
  • Leverage browser caching
  • Specify image dimensions
  • Combine external CSS

Page Speed Extension Observations:
 
I have checked with few domains and found different scores for same domain in Firefox and Chrome. Here is the list.

   Domain                          Firefox Score       Chrome Score
Google.com                             96/100                  94/100
Yahoo.com                              86/100                  84/100
Bing.com                                 95/100                  95/100
AOL.com                                 86/100                  80/100


Chrome is giving less or equal score compared to Firefox. If you have any observations, suggestions feel free to comment.
