Speedlimit

Sometimes we need to see how fast a website will load on different network conditions.

Thanks for the share Caleb. I’ve been using Slowy (http://slowyapp.com/) for much the same sort of thing as it can give an idea of just how painful a large site can be on a limited connection. I used to use the command line tool IPFW which ships as part of OS X which allows you to manually throttle your connections. Thanks to these apps I don’t need to do this manually anymore which is good as it is super scary stuff. I always thought I was going to somehow permanently cripple my connection to a dialup speeds!

Tim,

Yeah, I actually found Speedlimit because of Slowy. I don’t mind saving $5!

However, I’m actually using the Network Link Conditioner, an additional download for Xcode that does almost the same thing. Speedlimit is just much easier to set up, so I thought I’d share it.

That looks sweet. Is the upgrade to the $4.99 version worth it?

Use Xcode and install the Network Link Conditioner as Caleb mentioned. It’s easy to use. And free.
