How I Use It
All of our web clients want to know that their money is well spent. WebPageTest allows me to do just that. I run a test on the client's current hosting platform and then after we migrate the site we run the same test. Thanks to WebPageTest, I can typically demonstrate performance gains in a very clear and concise way.
