Web Page Analyzer 0.94 - Broadband Buyers Dominate Online - Europe's Digital Divide - Optimization Week of March 10, 2005

Optimization Week Issue #45, March 10, 2005

In this issue of Optimization Week we've updated our Web Page Analyzer™ and released another issue of The Bandwidth Report. Web Page Analyzer™ version 0.94 adds (i)Frame support, CSS image grouping, faster execution, an XML interface, and higher CSS and JavaScript size thresholds. Top-level (i)Frames are now analyzed along with the main (X)HTML document, making the analyzer more accurate in its size and speed calculations. With the move to web standards, CSS file sizes are increasing. CSS is replacing font and table tags and users have requested larger CSS file size thresholds (1160 bytes is too restrictive you say). We've bumped up our CSS and JavaScript file size thresholds accordingly.

Update: Web Page Analyzer™ 0.94
We've updated our free page analyzer tool to support a number of features that you requested. Topping the list is non-nested (i)Frame support, with objects sorted by size within each HTML page. Images called by CSS files are now grouped separately from HTML-referenced images. Other features include faster response time using "content length" headers, an XML interface, and last but not least higher thresholds for CSS and JavaScript file sizes.
